Tactical nuclear weapons can have the explosive power of a fraction of a kiloton (one kiloton equals 1, tons of TNT), while strategic nuclear weapons can produce thousands of kilotons of explosive force. After World War II, the proliferation of nuclear weapons became an increasing cause of concern throughout the world.   The end result of this selection effect is that since the late s, only insulated, inward-looking regimes have pursued nuclear weapons and become the target of imposed sanctions, thus rendering the observed success rate of nonproliferation sanctions by:

"Recent events in Libya have already had a significant effect on the region and beyond, and perhaps one of the most compelling results has been the potential impact on regional powers for the future course of nuclear proliferation.

Libya's nuclear disarmament experience has provided lessons learned for those states who have themselves acquired. "Rich in detail and innovative in theory, Målfrid Braut-Hegghammer's book provides an original and persuasive analysis of the Iraqi and Libyan nuclear programs.

It adds enormously to our understanding of nuclear proliferation and of authoritarian states and their leaders. Unclear Physics is a great contribution."Author: Målfrid Braut-Hegghammer.
