Jan Ruzicka

Aberystwyth University

Winter 2019/2020

The module examines key historical developments of the nuclear age. It looks at various factors which have shaped this period (the end of the World War II; the onset, conduct and the end of the Cold War; the post-Cold War period). It shows how nuclear weapons and concerns about their spread have informed state policies, led to the formation of international agreements and regimes, and shaped the involvement of non-state actors in international politics. The module also highlights the normative dilemmas presented by the onset of the nuclear age. It will focus on state policies, institutional mechanisms, economic and societal constraints, and ideas influencing the humanity’s life with the bomb.
