The global management of nuclear weapons and the ascendancy of China in international affairs pose two of the greatest challenges for international security today. Yet we know relatively little about the nuclear dimension of China’s rise, and the extent to which China has shaped global nuclear politics. This new book, published in February 2015 by Oxford University Press, offers insight into these issues by offering an empirically rich study of Chinese nuclear weapons behaviour and the impact of this behaviour on global nuclear politics since 1949.

Nicola is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow based at the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict, Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford and a BA Fellow of the Asian Studies Centre at St. Antony's College, Oxford. She is also stipendiary lecturer in International Relations at Trinity College, Oxford, and a research associate of the Oxford China Centre.
