With the collapse of the USSR, fifteen fledgling sates inherited a massive Soviet arsenal, unstable political systems, and desperate economies. A ""sell everything"" mentality threatens to result in the largest arms bazaar in human history, and this potential ""fire sale"" includes weapons of mass destruction. This book addresses the challenges the new independent states (NIS) of the former Soviet Union (FSU) face in controlling and monitoring their sensitive, military-related exports. Dangerous Weapons, Desperate States explores the various theoretical approaches that help explain the developm

Recent nuclear tests in India and Pakistan make it clear that the US can no longer continue a policy of "benign neglect" toward India. This book engages the key issues for nonproliferation and foreign policy that affect Indo-American relations. It addresses under-explored areas such as missile control and space cooperation, chemical and biological weapons, and the use of sanctions versus incentives. This book goes beyond historical analysis to offer practical recommendations for policymakers in both countries

International cooperation on nonproliferation export controls : prospects for the 1990s and beyond( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An extensive system of export controls has been used for decades to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. For some time the goal was primarily to contain Soviet power, but recent world events - including the breakup of the Soviet Union and the increased military strength of other parts of the world - have made the goal of nonproliferation more diffuse and more complex. This volume provides the groundwork for understanding the potential for multilateral coordination by examining in detail the domestic institutions and policies of supplier and target states. Unlike most work that has focused solely on Western suppliers, this volume examines a wide range of countries representing a broad spectrum of political, economic, social, and security values: the United States, Russia, Germany, France, India, Brazil, Bulgaria, the former Czechoslovakia, Poland, and South Korea. The contributors look at the political, economic, bureaucratic, and military forces that are shaping each country's export control policies on strategic goods, technologies, and services. The case studies highlight the very different views held by these countries on the opportunities for, and constraints on, using export controls to further nonproliferation goals. International Cooperation on Nonproliferation Export Controls will attract both the academic and policy sectors of the export control community as well as scholars of international political economy, foreign policy, and national security studies. Its comparative format allows unique observations on the policy process of emerging democracies, particularly those of the postcommunist states

Arms on the market : reducing the risk of proliferation in the former Soviet Union( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost overnight, the massive military-industrial assets of the Soviet Union came under the jurisdiction of fifteen states instead of one established government. While only four states inherited weapons of mass destruction, most of the fifteen states of the former Soviet Union can produce sensitive materials and equipment. Because all the states serve as transit points for both legal commerce and illegal smuggling, developing export control systems in all the newly independent states (NIS) has become the cornerstone of the global effort to reduce the risk of proliferation of weapons of mass de
