Planning for a Peaceful Korea
Click here for the complete book and individual chapters
Published on: Feb 2001
Notes:

With the change of administrations in Washington, current U.S. policy toward North Korea will naturally undergo review and scrutiny. The essays in this volume offer an option to the Clinton-era engagement approach. The authors suggest an alternative strategy for promoting peace and security in the Korean peninsula different from the ones contemplated or implemented by Washington in recent years.

Twenty First Century Weapons Proliferation
Click here for the table of contents and to order the book
Published on: Jan 2001
Notes:

A decade after Coalition forces targeted Saddam's missile, nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons capabilities, public concern about strategic weapons proliferation has grown. India, Iraq, North Korea, China, and Pakistan have all renewed their efforts to acquire weapons capable of mass destruction. Meanwhile, growing surpluses of weapons-usable materials in the US, Russia, Japan, and Europe have raised the specter of nuclear theft, and with the Tokyo sarin attacks of 1995, the most horrific forms of terrorism.

What should we make of these threats? Are the planned responses of the US and its allies sufficient? Will history ultimately end in a more prosperous, democratic, and peaceful world? In this book, leading national security practioners from the administrations of Presidents Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, and Clinton share their insights. Their analyses, along with those of other experts and the editors of two leading journals terrorism and the Middle East, not only clarify the weapons proliferation threats the US and its friends will face, but suggest what new policies their governments must consider.

Best of Intentions: America's Campaign Against Strategic Weapons Proliferation
Click here for the table of contents and to order the book
Published on: Jan 2001
Notes:
 
Although the United States' efforts to prevent the spread of strategic weapons have varied significantly since 1945, they all presumed to be avoiding one or another type of strategic war. To the extent their military scenarios were sound, so too were the nonproliferation remedies these initiatives promoted. But, as Sokolski demonstrates, the obverse was also true--when these intiatives' military hopes and fears were mistaken, their nonproliferation recommendations also missed their mark.
 
What is the best hope for breaking out of this box and securing a higher rate of nonproliferation success? The United States must base nonproliferation policies less on insights concerning strategic military trends and more on the progressive economic and political trends that have increased the number of relatively peaceful, prosperous, liberal democracies. For the proliferating nations that are exceptions to this trend, the U.S. and its allies need to devise ways of competing that will encourage these governments to expend more energies shoring up their weaknesses and eventually giving way to less militant regimes. A major resource for students and military professionals interested in arms control and international relations.

Fighting Proliferation: New Concerns for the Nineties
Click here for the complete book and individual chapters
Published on: Jan 1996
Notes:

The authors of this collection of essays examine such issues as devising an effective strategy against the proliferation of nuclear weapons, coping with the spread of space technology, and curbing Iran and North Korea's strategic programs. The contributors address these challenges and their implications for U.S. policy in the book's five divisions. Part 1 explores how best to reform existing nonproliferation efforts. Part 2 considers new high-leverage systems likely to threaten the United States in the near future. Parts 3 and 4 focus on two new truculent proliferators—North Korea and Iran. Part 5 discusses the need to develop a long-term diplomatic, political, economic, and military strategy against proliferation. Fighting Proliferation places itself in the mainstream of opposition to proliferation and the search for practical, policy-relevant approaches to dealing with it.
