Brian Finlay and Brian Michael Jenkins will discuss Jenkins' new book "When Armies Divide: The Security of Nuclear Arsenals During Revolts, Coups, and Civil Wars."

The book looks at how nuclear weapons might be sold or given to terrorist groups or nations in turbulent times, such as when rebels or disloyal military commanders seize control of some of a nation's nuclear weapons. Jenkins and Finlay will use the book as a jumping off point to discuss the dangers of weapons of mass destruction going from North Korea, Pakistan and elsewhere to Iran and terrorists groups.

Finlay will also discuss an expansion of the Managing Across Boundaries Initiative at Stimson.
