The Stimson Center recently launched our latest book, The Lure and Pitfalls of MIRVs: From the First to the Second Nuclear Age. This collection of essays – edited by Michael Krepon, Travis Wheeler, and Shane Mason – takes retrospective and prospective looks at the damage done by MIRVs in the first nuclear age and what we might expect from China, India, and Pakistan in the second nuclear age. The program consisted of two panel discussions moderated by Michael Krepon and Sameer Lalwani.
