When do states like North Korea acquire nuclear weapons? What can counter-proliferators such as the U.S. really do to stop them? Professor Nuno Monteiro’s latest book, with Professor Alexandre Debs, leverages powerful theory and extensive historical research to analyze the impact of security concerns on the nuclear trajectory of 16 countries to gain insights on these timeless puzzles.
