Professor Joyner blogs at www.armscontrollaw.com
Professor Joyner’s first book, entitled INTERNATIONAL LAW AND THE PROLIFERATION OF WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION, was published in 2009 by Oxford University Press. Professor David Koplow of Georgetown University Law Center has written regarding Professor Joyner’s book:
“This book is both important and timely. In it, the author leads the reader meticulously through some of the most intricate and urgent problems of national security, addressing the historical origins of our contemporary security problems and the most dangerous and provocative present threats to stability. Intended principally for lawyers (and providing a comprehensive, thoroughly documented analysis of the principal international and domestic legal sources and texts), the work also merits a broader audience, for it parses non-proliferation and counter-proliferation policy with striking clarity, offering fresh insights and proposing novel solutions. It deserves a place on any informed citizen's bookshelf.”
This book has also been reviewed in the American Journal of International Law, the International and Comparative Law Quarterly, and the Netherlands International Law Review.
Professor Joyner’s second book is entitled INTERPRETING THE NUCLEAR NONPROLIFERATION TREATY, and was published in March of 2011 by Oxford University Press. Ambassador Mohamed Shaker, Chairman of the Egyptian Council for Foreign Affairs and author of the seminal 1980 treatise THE NUCLEAR NONPROLIFERATION TREATY: ORIGIN AND IMPLEMENTATION 1959-1979, has written regarding this book:
“This study is a remarkable one and is greatly welcomed at an important juncture and after a successful NPT Review Conference in 2010. Daniel H. Joyner has relied on solid grounds in interpreting the Treaty, not relying entirely on statements made by certain officials and personalities involved in negotiating the Treaty. Since my book was published more than 30 years ago, it is a great source of comfort to find such a new and remarkable study that greatly enhances our understanding of the NPT and which can be considered as an inescapable companion to my study of the NPT negotiations. This new study should be a required reading to any one who would wish to deal with nonproliferation. . . . Congratulations for a well thought of study which is original and faithful to the tradition of meticulous interpretation.”
This book has been reviewed in the American Journal of International Law, Survival, the Nonproliferation Review, the European Journal of International Law, Arms control Today and the Leiden Journal of International Law.
