A Nuclear-weapon-free world : desirable?, feasible? by Joseph Rotblat( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world total of some 50,000 nuclear warheads is beginning to fall off sharply. It should be well below 10,000 by the year 2000. Should the ultimate target be zero? The idea of a nuclear-weapon-free world (NWFW) was put back on the world agenda by President Gorbachev in 1986. President Reagan also had a vision of a world without nuclear weapons. A number of politicians in the nuclear-weapon countries are beginning to see that such a world could be in their best interests. The disintegration of the Soviet Union and the collapse of the Communist regime have removed the main purpose of existing nuclear arsenals. The threat to world security now comes from nuclear-weapon proliferation, and the only effective way of stopping this is to have an enforceable worldwide ban. The authors - many of whom are experts with long experience in the field of nuclear weapons - seek to answer two key questions regarding the concept of a NWFW: Is it desirable? Is it feasible? They outline what they see as the essential provisions of a NWFW treaty and examine the inevitable problems of enforcement. All stocks of weapon-usable materials - civilian as well as military - would have to be closely monitored and guarded. Any technological or official efforts would have to be supported by "societal verification." That is, it would be the duty of all citizens to notify authorities of any suspected violations. Despite the problems of creating such a treaty and enforcing it, the idea of a truly nuclear-weapon-free world is no longer fanciful. It deserves extensive discussion, and this book provides a solid, informed beginning of the debate

12 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pugwash-sammenslutningen mener, at 1983 har været et særligt kritisk år i forholdet mellem stormagterne. Det amerikanske "stjernekrigsprogram", sammenbruddet i SALT-forhandlingerne og opstillingen af de nye NATO missiler i Europa har øget faren for en atomkrig
Nuclear non-proliferation and the non-proliferation treaty by M. P Fry( Book )

9 editions published between 1981 and 1990 in English and German and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume appears at a time when the prospects for banishing the threat of nuclear annihilation are brighter than at any time since the first atomic device exploded over the desert at Alamogordo. The last few years have seen an ex traordinary change in the climate of East-West relations. The programme of political and economic reform which President Gorbachev initiated in the Soviet Union and which is now spreading throughout most of Eastern Europe has been parallelled by serious efforts to reach agreement on measures for conventional and nuclear disarmament. This has led to new hope that international peace and security can at last be built upon the firm foundation of justice, respect for in ternational law and a determination to approach problems in a spirit of genuine co-operation rather than one of distrust and confrontation. This new climate encourages us in the belief that the obvious common sense of preventing the further spread of nuclear weapons will come to be shared by all nations. At the same time, we have to recognize two very disturbing facts, which imply that there can be no slackening of our efforts to strengthen the non-proliferation regime
Verification of arms reductions : nuclear, conventional, and chemical by Jürgen Altmann( Book )

10 editions published in 1989 in English and German and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anybody concerned about the maintenance of peace in our world, and in prospects of reaching agreements on arms control and disarmament, is bound to be interested in one of the key pre-conditions for related international treaties: the verification of compliance with such treaties. This book presents an up-to-date exposition of the latest developments in science and practice of international verification. It contains an account of the experience with new practical results of scientific research, devoted to solving verification problems in areas where agreements have not yet been concluded. The authors are scientists and practitioners from governments and research institutes in East and West. This book is required reading for anybody interested in the field: especially for decision-makers, government and military experts, natural scientists, technologists, those working in political and historical science. Among the topics covered are: INF Treaty, nuclear test ban, control of mobile missiles, and fissile material, demilitarization of space, stability and reductions of conventional forces, ban on chemical weapons. From the Reviews: "Verfication of Arms Reductions is packed with information and analysis which is vital for arms-control students, negotiators and other practitioners. The strength of the book lies in the science and technology contributions, but there are comprehensive political analyses also which have been written for longevity and are unlikely to become dated too quickly."
Strategic defences and the future of the arms race : a Pugwash Symposium by John Holdren( Book )

12 editions published in 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ending war : the force of reason : essays in honour of Joseph Rotblat, NL, FRS( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The year 1945 saw both the dawning of the age of nuclear weapons and the creation of the United Nations for the maintenance of world peace. Compared with the huge and continuing outlays of time and money on research and development of weapons since that date, little effort has been devoted to ways of ridding mankind of war and its armaments. Ending War contains sixteen essays on this topic, written by world renowned political thinkers and scientists. The book provides a historical perspective, and puts forward ideas to be pondered by every citizen. The contributors include Mikhail Gorbachev, who first declared 'A nuclear war cannot be won and must not be fought'; Robert McNamara, US Defense Secretary at the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis and of the Vietnam War; and Nobel Peace Prizewinner Joseph Rotblat, the only scientist to resign from the Manhattan Project, where the world's first nuclear weapons were produced

Global problems and common security : annals of Pugwash 1988 by Joseph Rotblat( Book )

10 editions published in 1989 in English and German and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The INF-Treaty, brought about largely by the "new way of thinking" of Mikhail Gorbachev, resulted in a welcome relaxation of tension between East and West, but has not eliminated the danger of a nuclear war. The Treaty has removed only a few per cent of the nuclear arsenals, and this is already being compensated by new improved weapons. The danger of an accidental nuclear war looms as large as ever. How to reduce this danger? How to deal the menace of chemical and conventional weapons? How to transfer the enormous resources spent on mililitary arms to the solution of other issues threatening civilization, notably the degradation of of the environment and the plight of poor nations? These questions are posed and solutions are suggested in this volume by 30 scholars and experts from 11 countries, brought together in a Pugwash Conference. The theme "Global Problems and Common Security" epitomizes the new approach to resolving the most important issues facing mankind at the present time
