Nuclear Nonproliferation: Concerns with DOE's Efforts to Reduce the Risks Posed by Russia's Unemployed Weapon's Scientists - February 1999
This February 1999 report examines the costs and success of the Initiatives for Proliferation Prevention program and of the Department of Energy's Nuclear Cities Initiative.
