Nuclear Disorder or Cooperative Security examines ways and means to address the serious challenges posed by nuclear weapons and their proliferation. A response to the Final Report of the Hans Blix-led Weapons of Mass Destruction Commission released one year ago, it offers up-to-the-minute analysis and comprehensive recommendations regarding U.S. policy in relation to the international security framework, nuclear weapons R&D, non-proliferation and disarmament, climate change and nuclear power, missiles and weapons in space, and demilitarization and redefining security in human terms. The authors are experts in law and policy relating to nuclear weapons, and bring a fresh, critical, perspective, informed by many years of experience. They recently returned from a Non-Proliferation Treaty review meeting in Vienna.

"A very timely and important contribution."
-Hans Blix, Chairman of the Weapons of Mass Destruction Commission

"This book is an important contribution to the effort to rid our planet of weapons of mass destruction, and I encourage my colleagues in Congress to read it." -Representative Barbara Lee
