Pure Risk: Federal Clean Energy Loan Guarantees
Click here for the complete book and individual chapters
Published on: Apr 2012
Notes:

Up until the controversy surrounding the default of the Solyndra Corporation on its federal clean energy loan guarantee in November of 2011, such guarantees enjoyed broad-based bipartisan support. Not any longer. First, President Obama failed to include any monies in his proposed fiscal year 2013 budget to Congress for such loans. Next, fiscal House conservatives held a series of oversight hearings on the Solyndra debacle. Pure Risk examines what risks remain for the billions of dollars of loan guarantees that have already been made and that the Department of Energy plans yet to make. The volume includes the perspectives of leading energy experts from the fiscal Right to the environmental Left and includes an analysis done by the U.S. Congressional Budget Office.

Published on: Dec 2010
Notes:

Nuclear Power’s Global Expansion: Weighing Its Costs and Risks explores the potential answers to questions such as, will the global spread of nuclear power programs, which could bring many more countries much closer to acquiring nuclear weapons capabilities, be an inevitable consequence of energy market economics? Or is such an expansion impossible without government subsidies and new policies to support them? This volume showcases the analyses of some of the world’s leading energy experts to shed light on this key 21st century security issue, published online by the U.S. Army War College Strategic Studies Institute.

Reviewing the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty
Click here for the complete book and individual chapters
Published on: Jan 2010
Notes:

For several reasons, the NPT is not just seen as being weak against violators and difficult to improve, but it is seen effectively as a legal instrument that enables nations to acquire nuclear weapons technology. Consequently, each chapter of this book is dedicated to clarifying the NPT’s key ambiguities, and the chapters are roughly structured to trace the NPT’s text article by article. Much more, of course, could have been included in this book. But rather than seeking to be comprehensive, the aim throughout is to provide a guide for both policymakers and security analysts. This guide should assist in navigating the most important debates over how best to read and implement the NPT and, in the process, spotlighting alternative views of the NPT that are sound and supportable. Reviewing the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty was published online by the U.S. Army War College Strategic Studies Institute.

Pakistan's Nuclear Future: Reining in the Risk
Click here for the complete book and individual chapters
Published on: Apr 2010
Notes:

With any attempt to assess security threats, there is a natural tendency to focus first on the worst. Consider the most recent appraisals of Pakistan’s nuclear program. Normally, the risk of war between Pakistan and India, and possible nuclear escalation, would be bad enough. Now, however, most American security experts are riveted on the frightening possibility of Pakistani nuclear weapons capabilities falling into the hands of terrorists who are intent on attacking the United States. Presented with the horrific implications of such an attack, the American public and media have increasingly come to view nearly all Pakistani security issues through this lens. NPEC reassesses the latest reports on the threat of Pakistani nuclear terrorism in its new book: Pakistan's Nuclear Future: Reining in the Risk, which was introduced at a joint event hosted by the American Enterprise Institute and NPEC, "The Other Nuclear Threat: Avoiding War in South Asia."

Nuclear Heuristics: Selected Writings of Albert and Roberta Wohlstetter
Click here for the complete book and individual chapters
Published on: Jan 2009
Notes:

Pioneers of nuclear-age policy analysis, Albert Wohlstetter (1913-1997) and Roberta Wohlstetter (1912-2007) emerged as two of America's most consequential, innovative and controversial strategists. Through the clarity of their thinking, the rigor of their research, and the persistence of their personalities, they were able to shape the views and aid the decisions of Democratic and Republican policy makers both during and after the Cold War. Although the Wohlstetters’ strategic concepts and analytical methods continue to be highly influential, no book has brought together their most important essays--until now.
