Background and history -- Problems, controversies, and solutions -- Special U.S. issues -- Chronology -- Biographical sketches -- Data and documents -- Directory of organizations -- Resources.

Explores all key issues related to the proliferation of nuclear weapons and efforts to curb them, from the U.S. atomic bomb project during World War II to current debates on nuclear terrorism, North Korea's nuclear test, and Iran's enrichment program. Clarifies weapons-related policy debates from both U.S. and international perspectives, offering a detailed look at current technologies, arsenals, weapons tests, and nonproliferation efforts. Readers will find expert analysis of such crucial recent events as Libya's disarmament, the failed WMD search in Iraq, A.Q. Khan's nuclear technology black market, "dirty bombs," developments in North Korea and Iran, and the U.S. plan to aid India's nuclear program--plus recent progress (or lack thereof) on a range of treaties and initiatives.--From publisher description.
