Russian Nonproliferation Policy and the Korean Peninsula. Authored by Dr. Yong-Chool Ha, Dr. Beom-Shik Shin.
Efforts to resolve the threat posed to Northeast Asia's security by North Korea's nuclear proliferation through six-party negotiations are proceeding with great difficulty. As in any multilateral process, a major problem is understanding the goals and perspectives of each of the participants.

Getting Ready for a Nuclear-Ready Iran. Edited by Mr. Henry D. Sokolski, Mr. Patrick Clawson.
This book examines what additional security threats Iran might pose as it becomes increasingly capable of making nuclear weapons, what steps the United States and its friends might take to deter and contain it, and what should be done to assure Iran's neighbors do not follow in Tehran's nuclear footsteps.

Getting MAD: Nuclear Mutual Assured Destruction, Its Origins and Practice. Edited by Mr. Henry D. Sokolski.
With the deployment of defenses of American cities against missile attacks, the Bush administration has explicitly rejected the strategic doctrine of nuclear mutually assured destruction (MAD). But what exactly is this doctrine? Where did it come from? To what extent did the nuclear weapons powers ever adopt it, and how much sense does it make today? Getting MAD, the first critical history of this influential line of strategic thinking, supplies the answers.

Current and Future Challenges for Asian Nonproliferation Export Controls: A Regional Response. Authored by Dr. Scott A. Jones.
How countries in the Asia region respond to the relentlessly changing nature of the proliferation challenge will affect profoundly the shape of global security for many years to come. In many instances, the countries of the region are major transshipment and assembly points for critical strategic dual-use goods and technologies. This monograph examines the current state of export control system development in the greater Asia region, with particular emphasis on the economic and security environment in which these systems operate.

Beyond Nunn-Lugar: Curbing the Next Wave of Weapons Proliferation Threats from Russia. Edited by Mr. Thomas Riisager, Mr. Henry D. Sokolski.
Originally commissioned by the NPEC as part of a study on the future of U.S.-Russian nonproliferation cooperation. It is different from other studies of U.S.-Russian cooperation because it relies on competitive strategies, which detail how best to pit one's strengths against a competitor's weaknesses in a series of moves and countermoves. The goal is to devise strategies that force one's competitor to spend more time and resources shoring up his weaknesses than in taking offensive action.
