<p>Written by an impressive group of leading scholars, with some new voices in the field added in, the chapters are uniformly strong in presenting balanced and detailed analysis of the critical problems emerging in nonproliferation policy. <i>Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction</i> is a significant contribution to the field of security studies.</p> (Scott D. Sagan coauthor of <i>The Spread of Nuclear Weapons: A Debate Renewed</i>
<p>Extremely well researched, the chapters are replete with concrete real-world cases and illustrations of the problems and risks. The authors—well-known experts in the field of weapons proliferation—avoid endorsing a moralistic standard of analysis . . . and they recognize that some tough choices have to be made. An important value of the collection is that it brings the reader up to the moment in terms of the current flow of developments, both positive and negative.</p> (George H. Quester author of <i>Nuclear Monopoly</i>
<p>Busch and Joyner have assembled a first-rate group of scholars well qualified to illuminate the critically important issues of combating weapons of mass destruction. The results speak for themselves in a highly positive way. Individual chapters resonate with their own authority and insights while contributing to the overall themes of the book. This volume will be highly respected by experts but its clear and concise style also makes it accessible to the general public. It fully deserves close attention by both groups.</p> (Jack Caravelli author of <i>Nuclear Insecurity: Understanding the Threat from Rogue Nations and Terrorists</i>
