This course is focused on the essential role of intelligence in defending against nuclear threats. This relates to the need to be clear as to the nuclear capabilities of existing nuclear powers, the threats associated with nuclear proliferation, and the danger of non-state actors -- terrorists -- obtaining nuclear weapons. We examine the role of intelligence from the information which led to the creation of the Manhattan Project in 1942 through the on-going concerns of the 21st century.
