Verification in an Age of Insecurity takes the reader into some of the most urgent arms control issues facing the world community, including the nuclear activities of rogue states and threats from sophisticated non-state actors. In the book, national security expert Philip D. O'Neill, Jr. identifies and addresses issues from the resuscitated disarmament agenda, from the comprehensive test ban to fissile material and biological weapons. O'Neill examines the need for shifts in verification standards and policy suitable for our volatile era and beyond it. He surveys recent history to show how established verification procedures fail to produce the certainty necessary to meet today's threats. Verification in an Age of Insecurity goes beyond a discussion of rogue states like North Korea to offer suggestions on how best to bring compliance policy up to date with modern threats.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Always a thoughtful observer, analyst, and contributor to the public dialogue, Phil O'Neill is once again ahead of the curve exploring a constant and growing threat worldwide. Verification in the Age of Insecurity is a compelling read and natural outgrowth of National Security and the Legal Process, a must read for those on the cutting edge of the nonproliferation debate as we begin the Obama era. "
-Senator John Kerry, Chairman,
Foreign Relations Committee


"O'Neill's analysis presents a clear and compelling look at the complex security issues our nation faces today. In a constantly changing world where threats abound, this book is both timely and valuable."
-U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (RI),
Member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence


"If future generations are to succeed in dismantling nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, then our means of verification will have to become more sophisticated. Philip O'Neill's incisive analysis provides a springboard for thinking about the future of verification in an increasingly complex world. "
-Dr. Patrick M. Cronin, Director,
Institute for National Strategic Studies, National Defense University
