‘Go nuclear’ or ‘go zero’? As the international community stands at a nuclear crossroads, a number of questions demand urgent attention: how well can established and emerging nuclear-armed states manage their nuclear affairs? Who commands and controls a country’s nuclear forces? What role do domestic and international stakeholders have in assuring the wise governance of nuclear weapons aimed at non-proliferation, non-use and disarmament?

In assessing the nuclear weapons programmes of eight states (the USA, Russia, the UK, France, China, Israel, India, and Pakistan), Governing the Bomb scrutinizes these and related questions and examines whether nuclear-armed States are accountable to their publics and to the world for the security of their weapons.

Please take the singular opportunity to discuss the pertinent issues of contemporary nuclear weapons governance this book raises and join:
