Postures for Non-Proliferation: Arms Limitation and Security Policies to Minimize Nuclear Proliferation
Postures for Non-Proliferation: Arms Limitation and Security Policies to Minimize Nuclear Proliferation
By the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)
Taylor and Francis, 1979, 168 pp

Much of the recent literature and policy emphasis dealing with the spread of nuclear weapons has focused on the nuclear fuel cycle and export constraints. This closely reasoned analysis looks at political strategies of various kinds, such as nuclear guarantees designed to reduce the insecurity of non-nuclear states. The deliberations of the 1975 NPT conference are reviewed. A valuable addition to the nonproliferation bookshelf.
