The global threat of nuclear weapons is one of today's key
policy issues. Using a wide variety of sources, including recently
declassified information, Nathan E. Busch offers detailed
examinations of the nuclear programs in the United States, Russia,
China, Iraq, India, and Pakistan, as well as the emerging programs
in Iran and North Korea. He also assesses the current debates in
international relations over the risks associated with the
proliferation of nuclear weapons in the post--Cold War world. Busch
explores how our understanding of nuclear proliferation centers on
theoretical disagreements about how best to explain and predict the
behavior of states. His study bridges the gap between theory and
empirical evidence by determining whether countries with nuclear
weapons have adequate controls over their nuclear arsenals and
fissile material stockpiles (such as highly enriched uranium and
plutonium). Analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of various
systems of nuclear weapons regulation, Busch projects what types of
controls proliferating states are likely to employ and assesses the
threat posed by the possible theft of fissile materials by aspiring
nuclear states or by terrorists. No End in Sight provides the most
comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of issues at the forefront of
contemporary international affairs. With the resurgence of the
threat of nuclear terrorism, Busch's insights and conclusions will
prove critical to understanding the implications of nuclear
