The fate of the nuclear arsenal left behind by the Soviet Union has been a central research focus at the CSIA since 1991. As the Soviet Union began to slide toward dissolution at the waning months of 1991, CSIA undertook a comprehensive analysis of the nuclear challenges that would attend the collapse of the Soviet state. The present volume addresses the largest remaining challenge associated with the Soviet nuclear legacy: the security of the nuclear weapons and nuclear materials now largely consolidated within Russia. Graham T. Allison was the Douglas Dillon Professor of Government at Harvard University and Director of the Center for Science and International Affairs. He served as Assistant Secretary of Defense for Policy and Plans in the Clinton Administration. Owen Cote was the Assistant Director of CSIA. Richard Falkenrath was the Executive Director of CSIA. Steven Miller had been associated with CSIA in many capacities. He was also the Editor in Chief of the journal International Security. Condition: Very good.
