The advent of nuclear weapons and their use to end World War II was followed by their role as a deterrent during the Cold War. The recognition by the United States and other world leaders of the horrendous death and destruction that a nuclear war could inflict on humanity subsequently led to negotiation of a succession of nuclear arms control treaties and related agreements aimed at reducing the threats of nuclear war. Implementing these treaties included negotiation and application of a variety of international verification mechanisms by the parties. In this book the author provides an overview of the Cold-War nuclear-arms buildup, an overview of the principal negotiated nuclear arms control treaties, and a chapter devoted to the nuclear test ban treaties. This book was first written to provide Los Alamos National Laboratory staff and other interested parties with descriptive texts and summaries of the present principal nuclear arms control treaties and with brief summaries of some major new agreements that have been proposed. A major purpose has been to describe and summarize the verification procedures and mechanisms used for each of the treaties discussed. It is hoped that these summaries will be useful to those doing verification research and development, to those considering future arms control policy, and to interested citizens. Most of the text is descriptive.
