Thanks and kudos to the Library for making electronic copies of all articles from Nonproliferation Review available to MIIS students. Founded and edited at our own Center for Nonproliferation Studies, NPR is the pioneering journal in its field and is an invaluable source for theoretical, historical, and policy studies on nonproliferation. For years, however, the MIIS community didn’t have online access to its own journal…but this anomaly is now a thing of the past. Our students, faculty, and copy machines thank you.
–Fred Wehling, GSIPS and MonTREP
