This book examines the issue of nuclear disarmament in different strategic, political, and regional contexts.

This volume seeks to provide a rich theoretical and practical insight to one of the major topics in the field of international security: global abolishment of nuclear weapons. Renewed calls for a nuclear weapons-free world have sparked a wide academic debate on both the attainability of such goal and the steps that should be taken. Comparably less attention, however, has been paid to theoretically informed considerations of the consequences of nuclear abolition. Comprising essays from leading scholars and experts within the field, this collection discusses the fundamental theoretical and conceptual foundations of nuclear disarmament and subsequently tries to assess its hypothetical impact in global and regional contexts. The varied methodological approach of the contributors aims to advance a multi-theoretical and multi-perspectival view of the issue. The book is organized in three main sections: ‘Strategic Perspectives’, dealing with the specific constraints and facilitators for the states to achieve their core objectives; ‘Political Perspectives’, with the focus on the power of norms, belief-systems and ideas; and ‘Regional Perspectives’, with the analyses of seven regional and/or state-specific nuclear contexts. As a whole, the volume provides a detailed, complex overview of the risks and opportunities that are embedded in the vision of a nuclear weapon-free world.

This book will be of great interest to students of nuclear proliferation, arms control, war and conflict studies, international relations and security studies.

Review:

'How realistic is nuclear disarmament? Contributors to this volume offer a range of judgments backed by careful arguments and empirical evidence. They embrace different conceptual perspectives, but speak to one another across these divides. This is a must read for scholars and policymakers'. -- Richard Ned Lebow, King's College London, UK

'A vigorous survey of current thinking on nuclear disarmament with a global range of views by distinguished and experienced analysts. From strategic, political, and regional perspectives they crisply assess this vital subject: pro and con, feasible or not, rewarding or not'. -- Patrick M. Morgan, University of California Irvine, USA
