Lawyers will find this book a very useful assembly in one place, of many key principles applying to nuclear weapons, relevant treaties, either reproduced in full, or signposting (this website has signposting also), the origins of more recent developments in international law. Lawyers will also find commentary about the application of international law.

Activists will find this book an important source of material to support anti nuclear weapons activism. Nuclear weapons are unlawful in international law whatever the nuclear weapons states may say to rationalize their illegal activities.
