Nuclear Safeguards, Security, and Nonproliferation is a comprehensive reference that covers cutting-edge technologies used to trace, track, and safeguard nuclear material. It is a contributed volume with sections written by scientists from leading institutions such as Los Alamos National Labs, Sandia National Labs, Pacific Northwest Nuclear Labs, Texas A&M University, and the Monterey Institute of International Studies.

The book is divided into 3 sections and includes 30 chapters on such topics as the security of nuclear facilities and material; the illicit trafficking of nuclear materials; improvised nuclear devices; and preventing nuclear terrorism. International case studies of security at nuclear facilities and illegal nuclear trade activities provide specific examples of the complex issues surrounding the technology and policy for nuclear material protection, control, and accountability. Specific cases include analysis of the timely issues in the nuclear programs of countries such as North Korea, Iran, and Kazakstan, among others.
