SSI books and monographs by Mr. Patrick Clawson

  • Getting Ready for a Nuclear-Ready Iran

    November 01, 2005

    Edited by Mr. Henry D. Sokolski, Mr. Patrick Clawson.
    This book examines what additional security threats Iran might pose as it becomes increasingly capable of making nuclear weapons, what steps the United States and its friends might take to deter and contain it, and what should be done to assure Iran's neighbors do not follow in Tehran's nuclear footsteps.

  • Checking Iran's Nuclear Ambitions

    January 01, 2004

    Edited by Mr. Henry D. Sokolski, Mr. Patrick Clawson.
    The fear about what Iran might do with nuclear weapons is fed by the concern that Tehran has no clear reason to be pursuing nuclear weapons. The strategic rationale for Iran's nuclear program is by no means obvious. Unlike proliferators such as Israel or Pakistan, Iran faces no historic enemy who would welcome an opportunity to wipe the state off the face of the earth.
