Description

Nuclear Safeguards, Security and Nonproliferation, Second Edition, is a comprehensive reference that covers cutting-edge technologies used to trace, track, and safeguard nuclear material. The book is divided into 3 sections and includes chapters on such topics as the security of nuclear facilities and material, the illicit trafficking of nuclear materials, improvised nuclear devices, how to prevent nuclear terrorism. International case studies of security at nuclear facilities and illegal nuclear trade activities provide specific examples of the complex issues surrounding the technology and policy for nuclear material protection, control and accountability. New case studies include analysis of the timely issues in the nuclear programs of countries such as North Korea, Iran, and Kazakhstan among others. This is a thoroughly updated must-have volume for private and public organizations involved in driving national security, domestic, and international policy issues relating to nuclear material security, non-proliferation, and nuclear transparency.
