    schema:reviewBody "Bringing together a diverse group of experts, this book examines the critical problems involved in the effective control of military and civilian applications of nuclear energy. The solutions proposed differ significantly from the arrangements and practices established during the Cold War era. The authors offer pragmatic approaches that should minimize environmental and security risks from nuclear energy while ensuring an open, fair-minded assessment of its benefits. Five decades after the first splitting of the atom, the military and civilian applications of nuclear energy have reached a critical juncture, providing an unprecedented opportunity to reexamine both the national and international mechanisms for controlling nuclear energy. The disintegration of the Soviet Union has eliminated the need to maintain and modernize a large nuclear arsenal and sharpened the focus on horizontal proliferation problems, such as Iraqʹs clandestine nuclear weapons program, civil plutonium production, the potential loss of central Russian control over the former Soviet nuclear arsenal, and North Koreas threatened defection from the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. In addition, both the U.S. and Russia are faced with the staggering environmental legacy of fifty years of nuclear weapons production. -- Review from http://www.amazon.co.uk (Oct. 19, 2012)." ;
