Simpson, John, Hiroshima Peace Institute (2004) Present at the creation: nuclear weapon policies and nuclear disarmament policies of the United Kingdom In, Huntley, Wade L., Kurosawa, Mitsuru and Mizumoto, Kazumi (eds.) Nuclear Disarmament in the Twenty-first Century. USA, Lulu Press pp. 108-127.

Record type: Book Section


This work provides a comprehensive examination of the current state and future prospects for nuclear disarmament at the turn of the century. The work juxtaposes a sober review of progress made during the last decade with a proactive agenda of proposals for new disarmament initiatives in the next decade. Taken together, the contributions to this volume suggest that, contrary to current conventional wisdom, the increasing global cache of nuclear weapons and the waning progress on nuclear disarmament of recent years need not become the defining features of the post-Cold War era. Rather, by examining the new conditions that have emerged at the dawn of the of the 21st century through both national and issue-based perspectives, this work reveals how the likelihood of continuing uncertainty and change in world affairs creates opportunities, as well as the need, for renewed progress toward significant nuclear disarmament.
