The safeguards problems which are considered in this book all have a common feature: they are concerned with controlling materials with particular properties—rare, unpleasant, or dangerous—that are used by man in the course of his economic and societal activities but whose use requires the exercise of special care. What has happened to bring these familiar problems into such prominence that sophisticated tools had to be specially developed to solve them? The answer is to be found in three major events, as was demonstrated some years ago by the findings of a research program on environmental quality.(1)
