Appu Soman will present a seminar entitled "Stability in the Second Nuclear Age" on Tuesday, Februray 12, 2007 in the Belfer Center library, beginning at 9:30am.

Dr. Soman's research interests include international history and nuclear issues. Soman will examine the question of stability in the Second Nuclear Age. Soman argues that what distinguishes the Second Nuclear Age from the first is the presence of multiple small nuclear powers with asymmetric capabilities that are linked with each other through conflicts. Soman will explain what this linkage means for crisis stability and arms race stability.
