The Four Faces of Nuclear Terrorism, a new book from the Center for Nonproliferation Studies, assesses the motivations and capabilities of terrorist organizations to acquire and use nuclear weapons, to fabricate and and detonate crude nuclear explosives, to strike nuclear power plants and other nuclear facilities, and to build and employ radiological weapons or "dirty bombs."
'This is a well-informed study that carefully dissects the scenarios of nuclear terrorism along with an analysis of the technological and logistical hurdles necessary to carry out such an attack. As such, it will be of interest to specialists in the fields of terrorism and nuclear proliferation.' - George Michael, Terrorism and Political Violence, Vol. 23, 3, 2011
