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.

Falling Behind: International Scrutiny of the Peaceful Atom
Click here for the complete book and individual chapters
Published on: Mar 2008
Notes:

If possible, it would be useful to enhance the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) ability to detect and prevent nuclear diversions. This would not only reduce the current risk of nuclear proliferation, it would make the further expansion of nuclear power much less risky. The question is what is possible? To date, little has been attempted to answer this basic question. Periodic reports by the U.S. Government Accountability Office and the IAEA have highlighted budgetary, personnel, and administrative challenges that are facing the agency. There also has been a two-year internal IAEA review of how its existing safeguards procedures might be improved. None of these assessments, however, has tackled the more fundamental question of how well the IAEA is actually doing in achieving its nuclear material accountancy mission.

Pakistan's Nuclear Future: Worries Beyond War
Click here for the complete book and individual chapters
Published on: Jan 2008
Notes:

After Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf imposed a state of emergency in November 2007, the political turmoil that followed raised concerns that Pakistan’s nuclear assets might be vulnerable to diversion or misuse. This book details precisely what these worries might be, reflecting research that the Nonproliferation Policy Education Center commissioned over the preceding two years. It tries to characterize specific nuclear problems that the Pakistani government faces with the aim of establishing a baseline set of challenges for remedial action. Its point of departure is to consider what nuclear challenges Pakistan will face if moderate forces remain in control of the government and no hot war breaks out against India.

Gauging U.S.-Indian Strategic Cooperation
Click here for the complete book and individual chapters
Published on: Mar 2007
Notes:

This volume consists of research that the Nonproliferation Policy Education Center (NPEC) commissioned and vetted throughout 2006. For at least half of the chapters, authors presented versions of their work as testimony before Congressional oversight committees. No matter what one’s point of view, these chapters deserve close attention since all are focused on what is needed to assure U.S.-Indian strategic cooperation succeeds. The volume offers U.S. and Indian policy and law makers a detailed checklist of things to watch, avoid, and try to achieve.
