The SIPRI Yearbook 1992 continues SIPRI's review of the latest developments in nuclear weapons and examines the US–Soviet START Treaty and the Bush, Gorbachev and Yeltsin unilateral reduction initiatives, nuclear explosions, world military expenditure, the international arms trade and arms production, chemical and biological weapons, the military use of outer space and the future of the former Soviet space programmes, major armed conflicts in 1991, conventional arms control in Europe after the conclusion of the 1990 CFE Treaty, and the ongoing negotiations in Vienna.

The Yearbook describes the changes in Europe in 1991 and analyses the new security structures. It examines the post-Soviet threats to security and reports on the work of the UN Special Commission to inspect and destroy Iraq's nuclear, biological, chemical and missile capabilities. It also considers the nuclear non-proliferation regime beyond the Gulf War and the disintegration of the Soviet Union.
