Added July 12, 2006
Taming the Next Set of Strategic Weapons Threats. Edited by Mr. Henry D. Sokolski.
Long discounted by arms control critics, traditional nonproliferation efforts now are undergoing urgent review and reconsideration even by their supporters. Why?

Getting MAD, the first critical history of this influential line of strategic thinking, supplies the answers.

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.
