Avenhaus R, Kremenyuk VA, Sjöstedt G (eds.) (2002). Lexington Books, Lanham, MD, USA.

With a foreword by by Hans Blix, Director General Emeritus of the IAEA.

Containing the Atom, the product of three years of research by the members of the Processes of International Negotiation (PIN) network, is a comprehensive study of the theory and practice of international nuclear negotiations.

Well-known experts in the field test eleven cases of international nuclear negotiations, covering:

Strategic arms control
The Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty
Nuclear-weapon-free zones
The Non-Proliferation Treaty and its Review Conference
Nuclear materials removed from the defense weapons programs
Nuclear diplomacy with North Korea
Nuclear risks in the Barents region
Nuclear safety
French-Japanese nuclear negotiations
The nuclear plant perspective on negotiations
Each case study analyzes the actors, strategies, processes, structures, and outcomes, and weighs the impact of the negotiations on security, energy, trade, and the environment.
