Baruch Plan, 1946
   The Baruch Plan was the proposal to control the use of atomic power presented to the United Nations Atomic Energy Commission in 1946 by Bernard Baruch. It called for the information about nuclear power to be made open, the implementation of international controls to ensure the peaceful use of atomic power, the elimination of atomic weapons, and a system of international inspection to ensure compliance. The proposal was rejected by the Soviet Union because it opposed the principle of external inspectors, which it saw as a threat to its national sovereignty.
   See also Atomic bomb; Hydrogen bomb.
