Summary The Natural Resources Defense Council once again provides the definitive account of the current status of Russian nuclear weapons. Taking advantage of previously unavailable information, the authors describe the origins, growth, and decline of the massive Soviet nuclear weapons production complex - the places involved in the recent headline-making episodes of nuclear smuggling. They provide an exhaustive treatment of how the bombs are made, where they are made, and the key personalities who have overseen the stockpile. The authors also reveal exclusive details of Russia's persistent dumping of radioactive waste in the Arctic region.
