Nuclear neutron weapon or reduced blast and enhanced radiation weapon

The reduced blast and enhanced radiation weapon, often referred to as the neutron bomb, has become a highly debated issue since June 1977 when information appeared in the press regarding such an item in the American procurement and defence budget. Although only a part of the over-all programme under consideration in recent years for the modernization of theatre nuclear weapons in Western Europe, the neutron bomb has been a matter of considerable political discussion within the United States and Western European countries, between the United States and Eastern European countries, and in the General Assembly at its thirty-second regular session and its tenth special session, as well as among the general public.
