ABSTRACT
The article focuses on world security from nuclear threat in the age of nuclear-air technology and aggressive communism. Much attention has been to arms reduction and disarmament but failures are evident. Analysts point to the absence of a world enforcement system under world armament laws as the root cause, but unrealistically they tend to neglect interim security measures as if a world enforcement system could be achieved overnight. Partial outlines of a world security system and such measures to control the nuclear threat could constitute the first phase of a four-phase program of world arms control. It maintains that the most important of the entire security issue is internationally available information about national arms matters among the great powers.
