    It critically reviews international law governing nuclear weapons with regard to the inter-state use of force, international humanitarian law, human rights law, disarmament law, and environmental law, and discusses where relevant the International Court of Justice's Advisory Opinion. The author, who grew up near the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons facility, presents a detailed account of the government's efforts to hide the effects of the toxic and radioactive waste released by Rocky Flats, and of local residents' attempts to seek justice in court. The announcement of a successful test of a nuclear weapon by North Korea (update: articles by NYT, WaPo, Guardian, and the text of the North Korean announcement) raises the question: did such a test render North Korea in violation of international law? As is often the case, the briefest questions can be the most challenging to answer convincingly.
