About this title


Examines the effectiveness of international nonproliferation measures and looks at the nuclear policies of Sweden, South Korea, Japan, Israel, South Africa, and India

From Publishers Weekly:

Conventional wisdom has long assumed that nuclear proliferation is inevitable. But as the author points out, the avowed nuclear powers have remained restricted to what he calls "the original five": the United States, the Soviet Union, France, Britain and China. In this well-researched study, Reiss isolates the sources of restraint in six countries capable of building and stockpiling a nuclear arsenal: Sweden, South Korea, Japan, Israel, South Africa and India. These restraints include domestic pressures, bilateral incentives and the consensus against nuclear weapons. The author provides a historical overview of nonproliferation, the role the United States has played in the six case-history countries and clarifies a little-understood phenomenon he describes as "threatening to go nuclear, without actually doing so." Reiss has served both on the National Security Council and in the International Institute for Strategic Studies.
