Abstract:

Since its enactment in 1970, the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty has become one node of a massive, sprawling, multibillion-dollar regime that is considered essential to slowing the proliferation of nuclear weapons and weapons technology. According to Shampa Biswas, these well-intentioned efforts to halt the spread of nuclear weapons deflect attention from a hierarchical global nuclear order dominated by powerful states and capitalist interests that benefit from the status quo. In Nuclear Desire, Biswas proposes that pursuit and production of nuclear power are sustained by this unequal global order whose persistent and daily harmful effects are experienced by some of the most vulnerable bodies around the world. -- from back cover.
