    Langewische looks at nuclear proliferation with the eye of an expert He offers both good news and bad On the good news side is that it is indeed very difficult to craft a reliable nuclear bomb of the Hiroshima sort Dirty bombs are another thing, but he believes that the public fear of them far outweighs their potential for harm The NPT, or Nuclear Non proliferation Treaty is viewed as both a saving grace in the effectiveness it has ha

    William Langewiesche s new book is a compelling mix of narrative reporting, profiles of striking individuals, and scenaric thinking about the contemporary nuclear proliferation His focus is on the mechanisms by which access to nuclear weapons technology is broadening, and what this broadening access means about the likelihood that terrorists will be able to launch a nuclear attack on a Western target The book focuses strictly on the ...

    I very rarely read non fiction policy books like this, much to the chagrin of my Georgetown government professors, I m surebut I REALLY LOVED another non fiction book by this author The Outlaw Sea read it read it so I figured I d give this one a try I definitely liked it and found it eminentlyreadable than most others of the genre maybe because he used to be a Vanity Fair reporter, he really knows how to make a to...

    The Atomic Bazaar dives into the main issues surrounding nuclear weapons Those issues are the primarily defensive nature of nuclear bombs unless someone is crazy enough to use one , the problem with nations that have bombs telling other nations they should not have them, as technology increases it will be harder to keep these weapons out of people hands, and how the threat of terrorism is amplified because of the amount of damage that one person co
