MEDIA REVIEWS

"David Santoro s innovative application of oncology to the analysis of weapons proliferation provides rich new insights that advance our comprehensive understanding of today s challenges, particularly the links between underlying causes and policy responses. Santoro pushes the metaphor to its limits and we are rewarded for it." - Wade Huntley, Consultant and Adjunct Professor, Naval Postgraduate School

"Santoro has produced an interesting and well documented volume. I like particularly those chapters where he discusses the driving forces of nuclear weapons proliferation. The analogy between proliferation and oncology is ingenious." - Jozef Goldblat, Vice President, Geneva International Peace Research Institute

"Weapons proliferation has become a central issue on the international security agenda over the past two decades. Academics, policymakers, and politicians have all looked for new approaches to help better understand and tackle the problem. Treating Weapons Proliferation stands out as a thorough and original analysis and is an essential guide for the expert community and anyone willing to learn about the subject." - Bernard Sitt, Director of the Center for International Security and Arms Control Studies, Paris

"As preventing the further proliferation of nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons and their delivery systems trickled up the priority list over the post- Cold War period (to No.1 for the Obama Administration), a library of thoughtful and comprehensive studies appeared striving for that fresh perspective. This one comes closer than most and provides a rewarding read." - Ron Huisken, Senior Fellow, Strategic and Defence Studies Centre, The Australian National University
