  Command and control was a primary issue in the first nuclear age. It remains an issue in the second nuclear age, but this talk does not deal with it. The core features of the second nuclear age: 1. An n-player game. The system is far more complicated in the second nuclear age because it is an n-player game—a multiplayer game.

Unlike the Cold War era, the Second Nuclear Age presents a bigger, multiplayer game. This means the Second Nuclear Age holds a greater danger of nuclear war starting through regional conflicts. National security strategies that still focus only on bilateral big-power standoffs like the United States vs.

Russia or China vs. Russia overlook the. The fear of U.S. by Iran and others may be a catalyst of the second nuclear age. Therefore the issue of spread of nuclear weapons is linked with the question of the U.S. global hegemony. It is a question of Grand Strategy, not merely of "management".

What the book misses is an ejection of grand strategic and ethics-related probing/5(24).Discovery and development – Henri Becquerel notices that uranium gives off an unknown radiation which fogs photographic film.
