  • Turkey's Nuclear Futureby Sinan Ülgen; George Perkovich

    Carnegie Endowment for International Peace 2015; US$ 15.95

    Turkey, with a robust modern economy and growing energy needs, is pursuing a switch to nuclear power.

As a NATO member, Turkey also hosts U.S. nuclear bombs on its territory,... more...

  • The Edgeby Mark Urban

    Little, Brown Book Group 2015; US$ 19.57

For all... more...

    The threat of weapons of mass destruction is still viable, and unless proper motions are made to prohibit this, global safety is still at risk.
