Item description for Nuclear Politics: Towards a Safer World by Satyabrata Rai Chowdhuri...
This book deals, on the one hand, with the destructive potential of the `ultimate weapons' and, on the other, the way of dealing with the problems these weapons might pose to international peace and security. The book helps both generalists and specialists understand how the policies of nuclear-weapon states affect our lives. The book covers the period from 1945 to 2003 and examines essential parts that both political acts and actors must play before any negotiation process can begin, if the objective is to end proliferation and eventually bring about abolition of nuclear weapons. The book is concerned with that area of politics in which nations encountered nations since the advent of nuclear age and man's consequent mastery of the powers of heaven and fires of hell snatched from nature's gods and devils by modern fausts, whose new alchemy made mockery of the old motifs of politics and diplomacy. The book offers tools of analysis and prediction which will help the readers to not only easily comprehend contemporary factual details but will also help them to choose a method of objective interpretation and forecasting applicable to past times, current happenings and to the probable shape of things to come, at least in near future.

Excellently Written Aug 13, 2006
I was just spellbound when I started reading this book. The Prologue is so philosophical! I have not come across a similar book in International Affairs in recent days!
This books covers from Plato and Aristotle to President George Bush Senior. A masterpiece of work for newcomers in the fields of Politics and International Relations, in order to have a thorough conceptualisation of what is going on ... in nuclear politics.

I have gone through every details of this book and, I recommend this book all persons who look beyond themselves. I believe this book will be liked by all. Emeritus Professor Satyabrata Rai Chowdhuri deserves kudos for doing such a wonderful work.
Profoundly Appreciative Aug 10, 2006
I wonder why this book did not come to my notice little earlier! I have read this book only recently and have greatly admired the writer. The writer, Professor Emeritus Satyabrata Rai Chowdhuri, of the University of London, has done an oustanding work that should be appreciated by we all. It is a work of a commendable magnitude accomplish by an oustanding scholar. I fully agree with Professor Mitchell Reiss that books on international relations are many, but I am yet to come across a book that may be found comparable with Professor Rai Chowdhuri's "Nuclear Politics: Towards A Safer World".
This book should be read by everyone who are concerned about world security.
Hats off to Professor Satyabrata Rai Chowdhuri !!!
