The 2017 Nuclear Ban Treaty: A New Path to Nuclear Disarmament,   Edited by Joseph A. Camilleri, Michael Hamel-Green & Fumihiko Yoshida

For the first time since the end of the Cold War, tensions in the Middle East, the Korean Peninsula, and in NATO-Russia relations have created new international concern over the threat of nuclear war. This book analyses the role of the new UN Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty in addressing global and regional nuclear threats. Most of the chapters were originally published in a special issue of Global Change, Peace and Security. The book also includes several articles on the treaty published as a special section in theJournal for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament. A new introduction and conclusion have been specially written for this book.
