Om Nuclear Non-proliferation
This book examines the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Act of 1978 and other stringent non-proliferation laws that seek to tighten U.S. nuclear export criteria and strengthen the international non-proliferation regime. It juxtaposes efforts of nuclear managers with those of reformers who remain intent on strengthening safeguards to prevent horizontal proliferation. Dr. Beckman looks at the development of the Atoms for Peace program, the mindset that grew up along with it, and the shifts in congressional thought about the promise and problems of the peaceful nuclear fuel cycle.
