Arms Control

  • Thinking about the Unthinkable in a Highly Proliferated Worldby Clark Murdock; Thomas Karako; Ian Williams; Michael Dyer

    Center for Strategic & International Studies 2016; US$ 34.99

    This study explores how a world with numerous nuclear states might function and what it would mean for our present conceptions of deterrence, for the place of the United States in the international order, and for international order itself. more...

  • Origins of the Warfare Stateby Carl Boggs

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 49.95

    The post-World War II emergence of a full-blown state of perpetual war is arguably the most important feature of contemporary American politics. This book examines the "warfare state" in terms of a broad ensemble of structures, policies, and ideologies: permanent war economy, national security-state, global expansion of military bases, merger of state,... more...

  • Stable Nuclear Zeroby Sverre Lodgaard

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    This volume examines the conditions necessary for a stable nuclear-weapons-free world and the implications for nuclear disarmament policy. The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is a road map to nuclear zero, but it is a rudimentary one and it says nothing about the kind of zero to aim for. Preferably, this would be a world where the inhibitions... more...

  • Failure and Hopeby Christine Mahoney

    Cambridge University Press 2016; US$ 80.00 US$ 65.60

    This book documents how global advocacy on behalf of refugees has failed, and proposes a new strategy using social entrepreneurship. more...

  • North Korea and the Worldby Walter C. Jr. Clemens

    The University Press of Kentucky 2016; US$ 39.95

    With nearly twenty-five million citizens, a secretive totalitarian dictatorship, and active nuclear and ballistic missile weapons programs, North Korea presents some of the world's most difficult foreign policy challenges. For decades, the United States and its partners have employed multiple strategies in an effort to prevent Pyongyang from acquiring... more...

  • India-Pakistan Nuclear Diplomacyby Mario E. Carranza

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2016; US$ 84.99

    Using a constructivist model, this study brings nuclear arms control and disarmament back into the debates on the future of Indo-Pakistani relations. Constructivism recognizes the independent impact of international norms, such as the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Norm (NNPN), on India and Pakistan?s nuclear behavior. Even though the NNPN does not legally... more...

  • Chinese Nuclear Proliferationby Susan Turner Haynes

    Potomac Books 2016; US$ 29.50

    While the world?s attention is focused on the nuclearization of North Korea and Iran and the nuclear brinkmanship between India and Pakistan, China is believed to have doubled the size of its nuclear arsenal, making it ?the forgotten nuclear power,? as described in  Foreign Affairs . Susan Turner Haynes analyzes China?s buildup and its diversification... more...

  • Private Military and Security Contractorsby Jr. Gary Schaub; Ryan Kelty

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2016; US$ 39.99

    Private Military and Security Contractors (PMSCs) a multinational team of scholars and experts address a developing phenomenon: controlling the use of privatized force by states in international politics. Robust analyses of the evolving, multi-layered tapestry of formal and informal mechanisms of control address the microfoundations of the market,... more...

  • British Nuclear Weapons and the Test Ban 1954?1973by John R. Walker

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 154.95

    In 1962 Dean Acheson famously described Britain as having lost an Empire but not yet found a role. Perhaps nowhere is this more apparent than in the realms of nuclear weapons. An increasingly marginal world power, successive post-war British governments felt that an independent nuclear deterrent was essential if the country was to remain at the top... more...

  • Surviving Amid Chaosby Louis René Beres

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2016; US$ 84.99

    Now facing a genuinely unprecedented configuration of existential threats, Israel's leaders must decide whether to continue their deliberate nuclear ambiguity policy (the "bomb in the basement") as they consider such urgent and overlapping survival issues as regional nuclear proliferation, Jihadist terror-group intersections with enemy states, rationality... more...
