    schema:reviewBody ""The book examines the three verification organizations that form the core of the emerging WMD control regime - the International Atomic Energy Agency, the organizations established under the Comprehensive Test-Ban Treaty and the Chemical Weapons Convention. A comparative study shows how their roles can be strengthened and used as a foundation for a more complete regime, beginning with the creation of a verification mechanism for the Biological Weapons Convention. The United States is presently sceptical about the value of international verification. The book addresses the verifiability issue by analysing the strengths and weaknesses in each organization and recommending ways to strengthen the process and enhance its management." ;
