While the Cold War ended more than two decades ago and global nuclear stockpiles have shrunk dramatically, there are still around 18,000 nuclear warheads distributed among nine nuclear armed states. Against the backdrop of continual political tensions and conflict, the nuclear issue will continue to dominate headlines for several decades into the future. This new four-volume Major Work explores this important issue and aims to introduce readers to the key arguments and authors in the field. With such a wide variety of theoretical approaches and substantive topics under the umbrella of nuclear politics, this collection will not only allow the reader to peruse the diverse explanations for the regime, proliferation, nonproliferation and disarmament, it will also guide them through the intellectual history of the field.
