In Canada's Early Nuclear Policy Brian Buckley weaves information from a number of disciplines to shed new light on Canada's early policies. Filling a longstanding gap in the national story, he explores the country's role in the early post-war period, cautioning against simplistic explanations and pointing to the continuing roles of contingency and personality in decision making. While the threat of nuclear war has receded in recent years, the number of states with nuclear weapons, the number of weapons, and their killing power are all far greater than they were five decades ago. Virtually all the issues that emerged fifty years ago remain on the international agenda and are as relevant today as ever.

Review:

"An excellent book. Buckley has made a thorough search of the literature and offers new and useful insights into the complicated developments of the period. It was a pleasure to read." George Lindsey, chief of Operational Research and Analysis, Department of National Defence, retired "Buckley brings together a lot of different information on Canadian atomic policy and thinking, tied together in a coherent whole with new information and an overall analysis otherwise lacking in literature on the subject." Patrick H. Brennan, Department of History, University of Calgary
