NUCLEAR MATTERS
 A Practical Guide
 
i
Tis practical guide to Nuclear Matters is an expanded and revised version of the earlier
Nuclear Weapons Stockpile Management Handbook 
 and the
Nuclear Weapons Council Handbook 
. Originally published in 1991 for the use of  Action Officers associated with the Nuclear Weapons Council, previous editions have been modified over time to meet the needs of the larger nuclear  weapons community as well as those outside the community who seek a better understanding of the subject. Since the early 1990s, the U.S. Nuclear Weapons Program has evolved significantly as a result of unilateral and bilateral arms reductions and the end of underground nuclear testing in the United States; successive editions of these books have been revised and restructured to reflect these changes. Tis book is intended to be an
unofficial
 reference that explains the history and development of the U.S. Nuclear Weapons Program as well as the current activities associated with sustaining the U.S. nuclear deterrent. It is designed to be useful, but it is neither authoritative nor directive. Please refer to the applicable statute, regulation, Department of Defense Direction/Instruction, or Department of Energy Order for definitive guidance in all areas related to the U.S. Nuclear Weapons Program.Te content of
