(p.77) 3 The Restoration of Nuclear Collaboration
Nuclear Diplomacy and the Special Relationship

Ian Clark

Oxford University Press

In the public mind, the Anglo-American special nuclear relationship is associated with the supply of delivery systems from the Thor to the Trident missile. It is the succession of agreements to supply such American weapons to Britain that is regarded as the heart of the nuclear relationship. While this is the public face of nuclear collaboration, it is probably fair to claim that even more important has been the much less visible exchange of design information and of special nuclear materials. This chapter discusses the exchange of fissile material and nuclear submarine technology.

Keywords:   Britain, Trident, Thor, nuclear collaboration, nuclear materials, submarine technology
