SERIES: Weapons of Mass Destruction
This new series will focus on weapons of mass destruction (WMD), discussing all issues surrounding nuclear, chemical, radiological, and biological weapons. It is envisaged that the volumes will present varying historical, contemporary, state, non-state, traditional, and non-traditional approaches from emerging scholars, established academics and those involved in the foreign and security policy domains. In the context of the nuclear section of the WMD series, it is evident that despite there being fewer nuclear weapons today than during the Cold War era, the threat remains paramount. More states in more unstable regions have attained such weapons, terrorists continue to pursue them, and the command and control systems in even the most sophisticated nuclear-armed states remain susceptible not only to system and human error but, increasingly, to cyber-attacks. The failure of armed states to disarm, the inability to prevent new states and non-state actors from gaining access to WMDs, and the expansion of nuclear energy plants present a real security danger today. As such, the series is considered by its editors to be timely and necessary
