520    The threat of weapons of mass destruction is still viable,
       and unless proper motions are made to prohibit this, 
       global safety is still at risk. Prior arms control 
       agreements have moved humanity within striking distance of
       global prohibition, yet these weapons of mass destruction 
       remain. This enlightening work discusses original 
       principles for a treaty banning nuclear and chem-bio 
       weapons worldwide. Mattis argues that a proposed new 
       nuclear treaty, replacing today's inadequate 1968 Non-
       Proliferation Treaty, would demand unanimous accession by 
       States which must be achieved before such a treaty enters 
       into force. By asking essential questions, and offering 
       value-creative proposals for nuclear treaty provisions, 
       this work offers a clear path to the daylight of worldwide
       weapons of mass destruction prohibition. Not only is 
       global safety threatened by the use of nuclear and chem-
       bio weapons, but more inclusively, today, society is at 
       risk of nuclear weapons being stolen or acquired by 
       terrorists for purposes of destruction. This risk lends to
       a necessary treaty that would require down-blending of 
       highly enriched uranium to low-enriched uranium to 
       eliminate this prospect. The heart of this work is its 
       delineation of necessary elements for a nuclear ban treaty
       that addresses inevitable concerns of all States, 
       especially today's nine nuclear weapon States. Mattis 
       addresses 17 major proposed treaty provisions that include
       : how to suitably ascertain "unanimous accession" by 
       states to a nuclear ban treaty (unanimity being a 
       condition for entry into force); requirement that states 
       be signatories to the current chemical and biological 
       weapons bans [CWC/BWC] prior to signing a nuclear ban 
       treaty; "non-withdrawal" by states from the treaty once it
       is in effect; necessary and new verification elements for 
       banning nuclear weapons; the establishment, via nuclear 
520 8  ban provision, of "non-withdrawal" from the CWC and BWC. 
       By asking essential questions, and offering illuminating 
       proposals for nuclear ban treaty provisions, the work 
       offers a path to a safer future through worldwide 
       prohibition of weapons of mass destruction
