Sinc the dissolution of the Soviet Union the nuclear threats facing the world are complex and constantly evolving.This volume is structured to promote wide-ranging, multi-national exploration of critical technology needs and underlying scientific challenges to reducing the threat of nuclear/radiological terrorism; to illustrate through country-specific presentations how resulting technologies were used in national programs; and to outline the role of legal, policy and institutional frameworks in countering nuclear/radiological terrorism.
All aspects of the problem are included/discussed, i.e. scientific and political aspects, since its complex problem by itself, by definition
Universal, it can be used by scientists and policy makers
This problem is constantly developing and in this book very modern developments are included, the last scientific achievements of Russian and western scientists/experts
Interesting for USA and EU experts in order to be familiar with the kind of achievements Russian experts have and vice versa
