This chapter establishes general factors concerning the conditions that are most critical in prompting a nation to develop nuclear weapons. From such generalizations, specific hypotheses can be formulated and systemically examined. The bulk of the data and materials utilized in this study are derived from a careful examination of various sources including official statements and documents, newspapers, books, and articles in scholarly journals pertaining to nuclear proliferation. Detailed descriptions of certain national experiences by various specialists are used to compare and evaluate each nation’s posture on nuclear weapons. Five developing countries and five nuclear states are introduced to the analysis and juxtapose against each other. Countries are classified according to their level of nuclear technology and motivation. For each country, potential factors affecting proliferation are identified in order to determine the impact of these factors on a nation’s nuclear option and to compare the relative strength of incentive factors to constraints.
