Abstract:

"Technically, nuclear proliferation is the spread of nuclear weapons, technology, or materials to countries other than the first five that developed them: the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, and China, in that order. Alternatively, nuclear proliferation can more broadly refer to any increase in nuclear weapons or groups that own them, which is the definition used herein. How to convince rogue regimes to give up their nuclear weapons is one controversy that revolves around nuclear proliferation. Another major debate concerns how best to mitigate risk of nuclear war in a world where proliferation is already occurring. Knowing the immense power of nuclear weapons, no leader would use them-and hopefully no erratic person ever controls them"--
