Spector is deputy director of the Institute of International Studies' James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies,. Mr. Spector joined CNS from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), where he served as an assistant deputy administrator for arms control and nonproliferation at the National Nuclear Security Administration. His principal responsibilities at DOE included development and implementation of DOE arms control and nonproliferation policy with respect to international treaties; US domestic and multilateral export controls; inspection and technical cooperation activities of the International Atomic Energy Agency; civilian nuclear activities in the US and abroad; initiatives in regions of proliferation concern, including the canning of plutonium-spent nuclear fuel in North Korea; and transparency provisions of bilateral agreements with Russia covering the purchase of weapons-grade uranium and the cessation of plutonium production. Additionally, he managed the Initiatives for Proliferation Prevention and the Nuclear Cities Initiative programs. Prior to his tenure at DOE, he served as Senior Associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and Director of its Nuclear Non-Proliferation Project. Before joining the Carnegie Endowment, Mr. Spector served as chief counsel to the U.S. Senate Energy and Proliferation Subcommittee, where he assisted in drafting the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Act and the Nuclear Waste Policy Act. The nature of the nuclear proliferation danger has changed dramatically in recent years. Although more nations than ever before are renouncing nuclear arms under strict international control, a handful of states persistently challenge international norms. Some are attempting to skirt nuclear restrictions they have previously accepted. Others continue to enhance their nuclear forces. Equally threatening is the prospect of an international black market in nuclear materials--a prospect made much more likely with the collapse of the Soviet Union and possible political instability looming in China. This is the seventh survey in the Carnegie Endowment's series on nuclear proliferation prepared under the direction of Carnegie Endowment senior associate Leonard S. Spector. This new assessment again offers the most recent available data on key developments in nations of proliferation concern. Easy-to-use maps, charts, and explanatory appendices are provided. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Very good.
