Koplow examines the forced merger between the national security and the environmental policy makers, recognizing the necessity but warning of potential and actual conflicts in missions. Environmentalism and arms control are two crucial sectors of American and international public life that have long existed in segregated "parallel universes." Now these groups must find a way to interest and work in harmony. Each area contains its own problems, irreconcilable alternatives, and political controversies; when the two sets collide, the uncertainties and barriers can become paralyzing. Koplow asserts that a balance can, and must, be struck between these two important interests to rid the world of these awesome weapons.

About the Author:

David A. Koplow is a professor at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington DC, where he teaches courses in international law, human rights, and arms control.

Review:

The subject of this book could not be more timely.... The author confronts the reality that a balance between two goals (weapons reduction and environmental protection) must be struck if terrible consequences are to be avoided.
–Arthur Berney of Boston College
