  • "U.S. Nuclear Strategy Reform in the 1990s," The Nautilus Institute, Berkeley, CA, March 2000. This report was also translated and published by the International Peace Research Institute at the Meiji Gakuin University in Tokyo.


1998 and earlier:

I also co-authored the following two Neptune Papers monographs for Greenpeace International:

  • "U.S. Naval Nuclear Weapons in Sweden," Neptune Papers No. 6, Greenpeace, Washington, D.C., October 1990 (3.4 MB).
    The report investigates Swedish non-nuclear policy and the nuclear history of U.S. Navy ship visits to Swedish (and other Scandinavian) ports during the Cold War. The report documents how U.S. warships as a matter of routine brought nuclear weapons into Swedish ports despite the country’s ban against such weapons. The U.S. government turned down a request from the Swedish government to comment on the findings and the Swedish ruling party subsequently decided to enforce its non-nuclear policy during port visits, similar to that of New Zealand. Before the decision was carried out, the U.S. government suddenly announced in September 1991 that all tactical nuclear weapons would be removed from ships and submarines.
