While the world’s attention is focused on the nuclearization of North Korea and Iran and the nuclear brinkmanship between India and Pakistan, China is believed to have doubled the size of its nuclear arsenal, making it “the forgotten nuclear power,” as described in Foreign Affairs. Susan Turner Haynes analyzes China’s buildup and its diversification of increasingly mobile, precise, and sophisticated nuclear weapons. Haynes provides context and clarity on this complex global issue through an analysis of extensive primary source research and lends insight into questions about why China is the only nuclear weapon state recognized under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty that continues to pursue qualitative and quantitative advancements to its nuclear force.

As the gap between China’s nuclear force and the forces of the nuclear superpowers narrows against the expressed interest of many nuclear and nonnuclear states, Chinese Nuclear Proliferation offers policy prescriptions to curtail China’s nuclear growth and to assuage fears that the “American world order” presents a direct threat to China’s national security. Presenting technical concepts with minimal jargon in a straightforward style, this book will be of use to casual China watchers and military experts alike.

Review:

Chinese Nuclear Proliferation provides comprehensive, unique, and invaluable information about China’s nuclear program. Susan Turner Haynes’s use of primary source materials in the Chinese language makes the book especially useful to specialists and to students. It is the most comprehensive study of the subject in decades.”—Larry M. Wortzel, member and former chairman of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission and author of China’s Nuclear Forces: Operations, Training, Doctrine, Command, Control, and Campaign Planning

(Larry M. Wortzel 2015-09-14)

“The conceptual sophistication, empirical scope, and theoretical depth of Susan Turner Haynes’s book will make it invaluable for the teaching, explanation, and understanding of both China’s nuclear policies and the global proliferation regime.”—Emilian Kavalski, associate professor of global studies at Australian Catholic University and author of Central Asia and the Rise of Normative Powers: Contextualizing the Security Governance of the European Union, China, and India (Emilian Kavalski 2015-09-14)
