The Andean cocaine industry by Patrick L Clawson( Book )

23 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is commonly known that the Andean nations of Colombia, Peru, and Bolivia are the international centers of cocaine production. But until now, there has been no comprehensive view of this billion-dollar industry. Using never-before unearthed information culled from their extensive field research, Patrick Clawson and Rensselaer Lee reveal the configuration of the drug industry, from the original cultivation of coca in the fields of South America to the sale of cocaine on the streets of the United States. The authors analyze the economic and political impact of the drug business on the Andean nations, including such problems as violence and the undermining of legitimate business. Through the ground-breaking work of Clawson and Lee, The Andean Cocaine Industry illuminates one of the most pervasive problems facing the world today
Smuggling Armageddon : the nuclear black market in the Former Soviet Union and Europe by Rensselaer W Lee( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Smuggling Armageddon looks at one of the most important and troubling international concerns of the 1990s and beyond: the illegal trade in nuclear materials that has erupted in the Newly Independent States (NIS) and Europe since the collapse of the former Soviet Union. Lee raises the central yet seldom-asked question of whether such traffic poses a threat to international security and stability. He unveils a grim picture that shows a Russia characterized by a variety of criminal proliferation channels; a Russia where smuggling operations are becoming progressively more sophisticated; and a Russia whose nuclear stockpiles already may have suffered serious leakages of weapons-usable materials. Lee concludes his groundbreaking work by assessing the implications of study findings for U.S. policy and by offering insights on the future of the NIS smuggling industry

Russia's Far East : new dynamics in Asia Pacific and beyond by Rensselaer W Lee( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The strategically located Russian Far East a vast expanse stretching from Lake Baikal to the Pacific Ocean is notable not only for its rich natural resources, but also for the economic challenges, internal dissent, and risks of foreign encroachment that it faces. Rensselaer Lee and Artyom Lukin explore the history, economics, and politics of the RFE in the context of its geopolitical significance both regionally and internationally. Lee and Lukin address questions that have become increasingly important in current global politics: What are the implications, for example, of Russia's growing economic dependence on China? Could the emerging Sino-Russian entente result in the RFE becoming a de-facto appendage of the PRC? To what extent is Moscow willing, or able, to strengthen its links to its neighbors other than China? Can Russia and the US act in partnership to further their common interests in the region? As they suggest answers, the authors shed much-needed light on a previously understudied topic
Nuclear terrorism by Jonathan E Medalia( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many believe that terrorists could cause more deaths and destruction with nuclear weapons than by any other means. The United States and the world community have tried for decades to avoid that specter through the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty of 1970, the Nuclear Nonproliferation Act of 1978 (P.L. 95-242), the Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction Program, and many other measures. Many have called the attention to the problem; websites with current resources include the Nuclear Control Institute, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and the center for Nonproliferation Studies. In the wake of the September 11 attack, the nuclear threat has taken a new urgency. This book addresses potential terrorist capabilities

Reappraising nuclear security strategy by Rensselaer W Lee( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The danger posed by Russia's inadequately secured stocks of nuclear weapons and fissile material is a major national security concern for the United States. Various cooperative U.S.-Russian programs aimed at securing nuclear material, weapons, and design intelligence have been mounted since the 1990s, but clever and determined adversaries may be able to circumvent or defeat the defenses that the United States and its partners are attempting to put in place. U.S. programs are by their nature reactive: they have long time horizons; they focus preeminently on the supply side of the problem; and they face serious technological limitations. Russia's imperfect commitment to nonproliferation also undermines the effectiveness of U.S. nonproliferation efforts. There are no easy ways to close the nuclear proliferation window. A proactive and intelligence-based nuclear security policy, one that complements existing programs while enabling authorities to do a better job of targeting and preventing proliferation damage, is needed to counter this threat. Various measures to strengthen nuclear security policy could include the use of "vulnerability profiles" of each Russian facility that handles weapons-usable nuclear materials and better collaboration with Russian and other former Soviet security organizations. A comprehensive nuclear security strategy must also focus more attention and resources on the demand side of the proliferation equation. The United States cannot conduct nonproliferation work effectively without reference to adversaries' programs for weapons of mass destruction and procurement aims. Ideally, U.S. policy should embrace the concept of demand reduction---influencing the motivations of adversary states and subnational groups so as to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons capability
