Leading powers are again taking seriously the eradication of nuclear weapons, yet with states such as India, Pakistan, and possibly North Korea and Iran going nuclear, it is only a matter of time before additional arsenals are deployed. The ultimate fear is that nuclear terrorism, a forbidding combination of technology and ideology, will destabilize the world. As missile defense systems grow in the United States and Europe, the question becomes whether nuclear elimination and missile defense will reinforce or weaken each other. Is missile defense a precondition for nuclear weapons eradication, or does it make it more difficult for the world to reach "global zero"?
Eliminating Nuclear Weapons is the first book to systematically compare and evaluate these two possible trajectories: either making missile defense a mandatory precondition for arriving at a nuclear weapons--free world or deemphasizing missile defense in favor of other strategies. In this timely and urgent study, Tom Sauer weighs a number of outcomes and recommends steps governments can undertake to mitigate disaster.
Tom Sauer teaches international politics at the University of Antwerp and is the author of Nuclear Arms Control and Nuclear Inertia: U.S. Nuclear Weapons Policy After the Cold War. He has studied at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies and has been a research fellow at Harvard University. He is also a member of Pugwash, a lobbying group seeking to reduce armed conflict and resolve global security threats.
