ABSTRACT

Non-Proliferation Regimes: A Comparative Analysis of Policies to Control the Spread of Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Weapons and Missiles [April 1, 1991]   [open pdf - 3MB]

The Bush Administration released a statement on March 7, 1991 declaring, "The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction may profoundly challenge our national security in the 1990s." In preparing to meet that challenge, United States non-proliferation policies have been the catalyst for global efforts to control the spread of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, and missiles. Continued U.S. leadership may serve as a model for other nations to follow and could encourage expansion of the international consensus against the various forms of proliferation.
