This edited volume investigates current issues relating to weapons of mass destruction. It examines nuclear proliferation, the future of strategic stability, the possible use of chemical and bacteriological weapons by terrorist groups or states, and the emergence of counter-proliferation in US nuclear policy. The contributors assess the profound changes the end of the Cold War had on the strategic environment, the new threats with which decision-makers are faced, and the responses states are developing to deal with the situation. Moreover, the book deals with the apparent paradox that the present era is in general relatively stable and conflict has decreased, and yet there has been an increase in regional risks of proliferation and terrorism.
