Despite near-universal opposition to North Korea's moves to
acquire nuclear weapons, Pyongyang is determined to succeed. It is
only a matter of time before the North Koreans are able to combine
their extant nuclear weapons capabilities with a viable delivery
system. The threat multiplies in light of the North Koreans having
already demonstrated the willingness and ability to sell nuclear
technology, materials, and know-how to other nuclear aspirants. In
"North Korean Nuclear Operationality," Gregory J. Moore asks
leading experts in Asian and security studies to consider the
international consequences of a North Korea with operational
How will South Korea, China, Japan, and Russia react, and does
it mean an arms race in the region is inevitable? How should the
United States handle the situation, both diplomatically and
strategically? North Korea has already destabilized the nuclear
nonproliferation regime by being the only country ever to withdraw
from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and then openly test
nuclear weapons. What are the repercussions for the
nonproliferation regime of a successful North Korean move to
nuclear weapons operationality?
Given the importance of these issues and the lack of
transparency surrounding North Korean politics, "North Korean
Nuclear Operationality" offers critical and timely insight. A
foreword by Graham T. Allison, founding dean of the John F. Kennedy
School of Government at Harvard University, sets the stage for a
rigorous look at the threats North Korea poses to regional security
and the nuclear nonproliferation regime.
