      This period is of particular interest. The s and s were the formative years of the Soviet nuclear program. By the end of this period, Moscow had a mature nuclear weapons technology base and a thoroughly integrated and redundant weapons complex, the configuration of which remained largely the same until the end of the Cold War. nuclear disarmament, the reduction and limitation of the various nuclear weapons in the military forces of the world's nations. The atomic bombs dropped () on Japan by the United States in World War II demonstrated the overwhelming destructive potential of nuclear weapons and the threat to humanity posed by the possibility of nuclear war and led to calls for controls on or elimination of.

      Disarmament accords follow during the s, ending the US-Soviet nuclear arms race. it has a nuclear weapons programme is exposed as supplying a global black-market in nuclear technology. Nuclear weapon - Nuclear weapon - The Soviet Union: In the decade before World War II, Soviet physicists were actively engaged in nuclear and atomic research. By they had established that, once uranium has been fissioned, each nucleus emits neutrons and can therefore, at least in theory, begin a chain reaction. The following year, physicists concluded that such a chain reaction could be.

      Special Collection: Some Key Documents on Nuclear Policy Issues, Edited by William Burr. Posted - J Right: Photo prepared by U.S. Air Intelligence for analytical work on destructiveness of atomic weapons.   The Obama administration did not publish a nuclear operations doctrine but in its nuclear posture review it sought to downgrade the role of nuclear weapons in US military planning.

About the Author Frank Barnaby is a Nuclear Physicist. He is a former Guest Professor at the Free University, Amsterdam, and a former Director of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. He is the author of The Role and Control of Weapons in Cited by: Nuclear arms technologies in the 's, Washington, DC, New York: American Institute of Physics, (OCoLC) Material Type: Conference publication: Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Dietrich Schroeer; David W Hafemeister; American Institute of Physics.

This new edition of a very current interdisciplinary book covers both technical material and social issues, to give readers of all backgrounds a sense of the overall implications of the arms race.

Pages pages In How Nuclear Weapons Spread, Frank Barnaby examines the far-reaching effects - both beneficial and detrimental - of nuclear by: This book after Herman Kahn’s “On Thermonuclear War,” revises the preventive measures for the disaster known as nuclear war.

That’s why it is one of the most popular nuclear weapons books. Staying engaged in the effort to prevent nuclear war requires an understanding of the history of nuclear weapons and the impact their use and production has had on people and the planet.

We’ve compiled a diverse list of some of the best books about nuclear weapons. From well-loved classics to warnings from the past few years, we hope that.

Kissinger took on an easy target in the doctrine of massive retaliation, but this is nonetheless an ambitious book — and one that opened up a Pandora’s box of nuclear. In the fissionable materials used in nuclear weapons (U and plutonium), the fission is caused mainly by fast neutrons, which travel only a distance of seven to 10 centimeters before colliding with a nucleus, so that each doubling of the neutron population occurs in about microseconds (one-hundred millionth of a second).

The nuclear arms race was an arms race competition for supremacy in nuclear warfare between the United States, the Soviet Union, and their respective allies during the Cold this very period, in addition to the American and Soviet nuclear stockpiles, other countries developed nuclear weapons, though none engaged in warhead production on nearly the same scale as the two superpowers.

Eight sovereign states have publicly announced successful detonation of nuclear weapons. Five are considered to be nuclear-weapon states (NWS) under the terms of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT).

In order of acquisition of nuclear weapons these are the United States, Russia (the successor state to the Soviet Union), the United Kingdom, France, and China.

Traces the development of nuclear weapons, describes the energy and blast effects produced by an atom bomb, and discusses civil defense, nuclear strategies, and the economic impact of the arms race. : The Nuclear Arms Race: Technology and Society (): Paul P. Craig, John A.

Weapons are the primary focus of the book, with the history of their development and nuclear politics included in the introductory chapters. Two federal undercover agents--one of them posing as a suave Mafia operative from Miami--negotiated with Chinese arms dealers for more than 16.

Explores the motivation behind the development of various nuclear arms technologies and their deployment and examines the effects these technologies have on military, political and social strategies.

Discusses the nature of deterrence and alternatives to it, arms control, and disarmament. "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title. India’s nuclear arms race.

India’s arsenal of nuclear weapons stockpile and infrastructure has been growing in recent years. The Indian defence ministry plans to build six fast breeder nuclear reactors by the mids, which will allow the nation to produce more plutonium for future nuclear weapons technology.

China’s theft of American technology gave it a year head start in developing its own nuclear warhead delivery system, Horowitz writes.

Meanwhile, the U.S. had ab nuclear weapons in the early s. Hecker and the rest of the Americans were deeply concerned about the one million-plus Russians who worked in nuclear facilities.Attempts to smuggle nuclear material from C.I.S. are stopped.

Secret nuclear testing on humans is revealed by both the U.S. and C.I.S. North Korea is suspected to be building nuclear weapons; they threaten to withdraw from the IAEA. May 11 - nations renew the Non-Proliferation Treaty. May 15 - China conducts an underground nuclear test.
