Nuclear Weapons Counterproliferation: A New Grand Bargain criticizes the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty as no longer capable of stopping the spread of weapons that can literally destroy the world. How can such deadly devices be effectively restricted from rogue governments and terrorists? Jack I. Garvey (Professor of Law, University of San Francisco) offers guiding principles and prerogatives to achieve this goal, hinging upon a United Nations Security Council Counterproliferation Resolution that would apply equally to all States. "The sanctions orchestrated for Iraq, Iran, and North Korea achieved compliance value notwithstanding the failure to achieve more direct counterproliferation objectives, by imposing considerable costs on the targeted governments. Sanctions in the hard cases are persuasive evidence for other governments that compliance with the nuclear weapons non-proliferation regime is the preferred option." Forward-thinking and extensively researched, Nuclear Weapons Counterpoliferation is quite literally a book that could help save the world, and worthy of the highest recommendation.
