Reviews

"In the Post-9-11 era, when governments fret over security threats posed by emerging nuclear powers, such as Iran, and worry about the terrorist-WMD nexus, it is easy to overlook the significant challenge posed by an established nuclear power - China. Twomey's edited volume is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the dangers and opportunities implicit in a rising, nuclear China. This book, whichcontains insightful chapters by leading analysts and experts from China and the United States, is highly recommended." - Andrew Scobell, Associate Professor of International Affairs and Director of the China Program, George H. W. Bush School of Government, Texas A&M University

"In this pioneering volume, a select group of American and Chinese specialists on international security and arms control grapple with how both countries understand the role of nuclear weapons in international politics. The United States and China are only beginning to grasp the potential effects of nuclear capabilities on future U.S.-China political-military relations. The authors highlight the need to fully understand the animating impulses of national strategy in both states, and the possible ramifications for international security in the longer term. These essays warrant careful consideration by students and practitioners alike." - Jonathan D. Pollack, Professor of Asian and Pacific Studies, Naval War College
