  • Humanization of Arms Controlby Daniel Rietiker

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Despite clear legal rules and political commitments, no significant progress has been made in nuclear disarmament for two decades.

The author explores an alternative approach to arms control focusing on the human dimension rather... more...

  • Indian Power Projectionby Shashank Joshi

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 47.95

    India is growing into one of Asia’s most important military powers. Its defence budget has more than doubled in the past decade, and it imports more arms than anyone else in the world. But India is still seen as a land power focused on long, disputed and militarised borders with Pakistan and China rather than the global military force it was in the... more...

  • The US–India Nuclear Agreementby Vandana Bhatia

    Lexington Books 2017; US$ 85.00

    This book analyzes the 2008 US–India nuclear cooperation agreement.

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    This book examines the negotiations between the USA and the USSR on the limitation of strategic arms during the Cold War, from 1969 to 1979. The negotiations on the limitation of strategic arms, which were concluded in two agreements SALT I and SALT II (with only the first ratified), marked a major change in the history of arms control negotiations.... more...

  • North Korea and Nuclear Weaponsby Sung Chull Kim; Michael D. Cohen

    Georgetown University Press 2017; US$ 32.95

    North Korea is perilously close to developing strategic nuclear weapons capable of hitting the United States and its East Asian allies. Since their first nuclear test in 2006, North Korea has struggled to perfect the required delivery systems. Kim Jong-un’s regime now appears to be close, however. Sung Chull Kim, Michael D. Cohen, and the volume contributors... more...

  • Sandinista Nicaragua's Resistance to US Coercionby Héctor Jr Perla

    Cambridge University Press 2017; US$ 80.00

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2017; US$ 28.00
