Krepinevich, Andrew F.  US Nuclear Forces:  Meeting the Challenge of a Proliferated World.  Washington, Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, 2009.  88 p.
This report seeks to provide the basis for an informed and constructive debate over the role of nuclear weapons in the overall US defense posture.  To this end, the principal focus is on identifying the existing and emerging security environment as it pertains to nuclear weapons.  The report also offers some recommendations on how the United States might best respond to the challenges posed by nuclear proliferation, and, hopefully, create a more secure global environment.

Kugler, Richard L.  An Extended Deterrence Regime to Counter Iranian Nuclear Weapons:  Issues and Options.  Washington, Center for Technology and National Security Policy, National Defense University, 2009.  50 p.
Anayzes the idea of creating a U.S.-led "extended deterrence regime" to respond to potential Iranian acquisition of nuclear weapons and missiles.  It does not focus on how to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear-armed power.  Instead it addresses how the U.S. Government can act to deter Iran in a future setting where Iran already possesses these weapons and is trying to employ them to geopolitical advantage.

Democracy and Nuclear Arms Control -- Destiny or Ambiguity?  Security Studies 17:810-854 October 2008.
Is there a particularly democratic way of dealing with nuclear arms control?  Against the background of democratic peace (DP) theory, and using Immanuel Kant's writing as a starting point, this article argues that democracies should indeed develop a preference for arms control, but that Liberalism as well as the nature of nuclear weapons opens the possibility for contingent developments within a DP framework.

Reviewing the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT).  Carlisle, PA, Strategic Studies Institute, U.S. Army War College, 2010.  447 p.
"As currently interpreted, it is difficult to see why the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) warrants much support as a nonproliferation convention.  Most foreign ministries, including that of Iran and the United States, insist that Article IV of the NPT recognizes the ’inalienable right’ of all states to develop ’peaceful nuclear energy’.  This includes money-losing activities, such as nuclear fuel reprocessing, which can bring countries to the very brink of acquiring nuclear weapons.  If the NPT is intended to ensure that states share peaceful "benefits" of nuclear energy and to prevent the spread of nuclear bomb making technologies, it is difficult to see how it can accomplish either if the interpretation identified above is correct."--P. 3
