In Detect, Dismantle, and Disarm, the first nontechnical book on the IAEA’s role in verification, Christine Wing and Fiona Simpson examine the IAEA's experience in the four cases of Iraq, DPRK, South Africa, and Libya and capture the elements of the verification process most useful for the design of future verification missions.

The important work of the IAEA in verifying dismantlement and disarmament has attracted surprisingly little attention—unit now. In this comprehensive study, Wing and Simpson fill that lacuna by collecting and analyzing a wealth of data about all the relevant cases. Developing machinery capable of effectively verifying the rollback of nuclear weapon programs, especially in a noncooperative setting, is a critical element of creating a rules-based nuclear order able to meet today's nuclear threat. This useful and interesting volume advances that vital goal.
