AUTHORPatrikarakos, David
TITLENuclear Iran: The Birth of an Atomic State
PUBLISHERI. B. Tauris and Co.

This book seeks to present a realistic, factual understanding of what Iran’s nuclear program means to that nation. It presents the history of the program from its beginnings with the Shah in the late 1950s to 2012. The chapters in the first section deal with the development of the program from 1957 to 2001. The second section addresses the program’s growth from the discovery of the nation’s undeclared nuclear activities in 2002 to 2012. The author draws from primary sources and interviews with key players in Iran and abroad. The final chapters show U.S. attempts to negotiate with Iran, Israel’s fear of a nuclear Iran, and the possible options for addressing Iran’s nuclear future. Integrating the history, culture, and politics that have influenced the program for the past sixty years in a comprehensive, understandable way, the author intends to help the debate over Iran be an informed one.
