520    "This volume brings together more than three decades of 
       research and writings by Professor Ramesh Thakur on the 
       challenges posed by nuclear weapons. Following an 
       introduction to the current nuclear state of play, the 
       book addresses the challenge of nuclear weapons in three 
       parts. Part I describes the scholar-practitioner interface
       in trying to come to grips with this challenge, the main 
       policy impact on security strategy, and the various future
       nuclear scenarios. Part II addresses regional nuclear 
       challenges from the South Pacific to East, South and West 
       Asia and thereby highlights serious deficiencies in the 
       normative architecture of the nuclear arms control and 
       disarmament regime. In the third and final part, the 
       chapters discuss regional nuclear-weapon-free zones, NPT 
       anomalies (and their implications for the future of the 
       nuclear arms control regime) and, finally, assess the 
       global governance architecture of nuclear security in 
       light of the three Nuclear Security Summits between 2010 
       and 2014. The concluding chapter argues for moving towards
       a world of progressively reduced nuclear weapons in 
       numbers, reduced salience of nuclear weapons in national 
       security doctrines and deployments, and, ultimately, a 
       denuclearized world. This book will be of much interest to
       students of nuclear proliferation, global governance, 
       international organisations, diplomacy and security
