Asia as a whole has the world's highest concentration of nuclear weapons, the world's most significant recent nuclear proliferation, and in addition a great deal of political instability. The containment and prevention of nuclear proliferation, especially in Asia, continues to be a grave concern for the international community. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the state of nuclear arsenals, nuclear ambitions and nuclear threats across all of Asia. It covers the Middle East, including Israel, China, the India-Pakistan confrontation and North Korea. It discusses conventional warfare risks, risks from non-state armed groups, and attempts to limit and control nuclear weapons, both international initiatives and American diplomacy and interventions. The book concludes by assessing the possibility of nuclear revival, the potential outcomes of international approaches to nuclear disarmament, and the efficacy of coercive diplomacy in containing nuclear proliferation.
