The Age of Deception: Nuclear Diplomacy in Treacherous Times

The Age of Deception: Nuclear Diplomacy in Treacherous Times

Mohamed ElBaradei


"Mohammed ElBaradei is without doubt one of the certainly nice leaders of his generation."―Graham T. Allison, Douglas Dillon Professor of presidency and Director of the Belfer heart for technology and foreign Affairs, John F. Kennedy college of presidency, Harvard University

As the director of the UN's overseas Atomic power corporation, Mohamed ElBaradei performed a key function within the such a lot high-stakes conflicts of our time. Contending with the Bush administration's attack on Iraq, the nuclear aspirations of North Korea, and the West's standoff with Iran, he emerged as a lone self sufficient voice, uniquely credible within the Arab international and the West alike. As questions over Iran's nuclear ability proceed to fill the media, ElBaradei's account is either enlightening and fascinating.

ElBaradei takes us contained in the nuclear fray, from behind-the-scenes exchanges in Washington and Baghdad to the streets of Pyongyang and the path of Pakistani nuclear smugglers. He decries an us-versus-them technique and insists at the necessity of relentless international relations. "We don't have any different choice," ElBaradei says. "The different choice is unthinkable."
