"An essential guide to understanding the nature of the proliferation problem, DEADLY ARSENALS provides up-to-date and reliable information about who has what where, and illustrates the tools at our disposal to respond to these dangerous threats." Senator Richard Lugar, United States Senate
"Chapters are devoted to a thorough analysis of the eight nuclear weapons states, the two 'hard cases' (North Korea and Iran) and 'nonproliferation successes' (eight countries that have backed off)." Future Survey, 11/1/2005
"In addition to excellent analyses of the difficult proliferation cases of Iran and North Korea, Deadly Arsenals has the virtue of demonstrating that nuclear proliferation is not a one-way street and can be reversed" William C. Potter, Director of the Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Monterey Inistitute, Chronicle of Higher Education
" Deadly Arsenals... offers a comprehensive and authoritative snapshot of today's proliferation challenges. Excellent informative tables summarize proliferation specifics in the countries examined. For anyone wanting to 'get smart' on the proliferation challenge... Deadly Arsenals is the place to start." Survival, International Institute for Strategic Studies
" Deadly Arsenals is a fascinating read that will appeal to both the practitioner with experience in the field as well as the layman. It is also an outstanding reference and is replete with ample tables, maps, and appendices that might well make this book a definitive research resource in this field for sometime to come." Proceedings, U.S. Naval Institute

The book is detailed to the extent that one would think that some of the material should be classified, because there is a chapter on Russian nuclear facilities which handle nuclear materials, waste mamnagement sites, Russian stategic submarine fleet sites and nuclear test sites are featured. Also China's aresnals are thorougly presented and many others. Iran N. Korea to name a few.
The authors describe many of the international network of treaties and agreements construted over the past 50 years. Also there's a chapter on nuclear, biological and chemical materials and weapon systems to deliver them.
Overall I enjoyed reading this book, it's a good refernece to have if you want to know about proliferation and non proliferation issues that affect the fragile world we live in.
