Nuclear Proliferation: 1960s UCLA Security Studies

Just recent announced, 'secret' attempts by present Administration to transfer highly restricted and legally prohibited Nuclear technology out of the US to Saudi Arabia, where besides  legal consequences and political harms, very important regional and strategic nuclear balances of power are directly involved. While the list is focused upon history it does seem appropriate to bring into the list this publication by UCLA's poly sci dept., in the mid 1960s, as part of their then Security Studies program.

Nuclear Prolifieration and the spread of nuclear weapons issues have been around for several decades now; in fact, since at least the 1960s, well over 50 years. One of the earlier works on this subject is Leonard beaton's volume included here as example. it is not by far the only source.
