From the reviews:
"Drawing from their experience, the authors provide a well-structured and comprehensive view of the CTBT, from the construction of nuclear devices to the promising first results of the monitoring system of the treaty. In an impeccable edition, the chapters are clearly divided into subsections, and numerous illustrations are used to clarify the arguments in the text."
G. Suarez, EOS Newsletter, Vol. 91, No. 21, p. 193
"The book focuses on the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty and the CTBT Organization (CTBTO) that runs the International Monitoring System (IMS) and the International Data Centre (IDC). The authors are experienced researchers with outstanding experience in seismic monitoring and who have helped to create what is now CTBTO. ... seems very important to scientists dealing with seismic- or hydroacoustic, infrasound and radionuclide monitoring ... ." (Pawel Wiejacz, Pure and Applied Geophysics, Vol. 167, 2010)
"It is a solid reference edition concerning the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), International Nuclear Explosion Monitoring System (IMS) and Preparatory Commission of the CTBT Organization. ... the authors produced a multilayered book in which one can distinguish several conceptual layers. ... the text is supplied with a lot of photographs, maps and diagrams ... . The structure of the book is designed to make good that thesis. ... gives the reader a holistic view of the diplomatic struggle for the nuclear test ban." (Alexey Fenenko, International Trends, Vol. 8 (3), September-December, 2010)
