Summary
"The authors in this volume agree with these leaders' judgment: nuclear terrorism represents today's gravest national security challenge. In the pages that follow, fourteen scholars, scientists, and practitioners consider how best to confront and combat this danger. Their articles address this challenge from all azimuths: from the strategic to tactical, from the ideological to technical, and from the historical to contemporary" -- p.7
