    Reviewed by Michael Krepon. A Perpetual Menace: Nuclear Weapons and International Order. By William Walker. Routledge, , pp. William Walker is a rare find: a humanist and elegant writer conversant with technical detail, as well as a specialist in nuclear proliferation who is intrigued by the subject of how power has been applied to create, maintain, and shape nuclear order. Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons - Taylor Published by Guset User, Description: Proliferation of Nuclear Wearpons / 3 To summarize the point: The most difficult technical barrier for the production of nuclear weapons is access to the required.

    Nuclear weapons produce enormous explosive energy. Their significance may best be appreciated by the coining of the words kiloton (1, tons) and megaton (1,, tons) to describe their blast energy in equivalent weights of the conventional chemical explosive example, the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, in , containing only about 64 kg ( pounds) of highly enriched.   China’s continuing complicity in nuclear proliferation networks would weaken the global nuclear security regime. Hence, China must cooperate with the international community for reinvesting the benefits achieved by the Nuclear Security Summit process, and help develop stronger nuclear security architecture in the Indian subcontinent.

    The effect of nuclear weapons on the behaviour of newly nuclear states, and the potential for future international crises, are of particular concern. As a region of burgeoning economic and political importance, South Asia offers a crucial test of proliferation’s effects . This thesis examines U.S. nonproliferation policy and the problem of nuclear proliferation in India and Pakistan. Its central hypothesis is that the end of the Cold War has created an opportunity to advance U.S. nonproliferation interests and work with both India and Pakistan to reduce the threat of a nuclear confrontation on the Indian Subcontinent.
