This work provides a detailed history of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) role in the control of nuclear weapons and the development of civilian applications of nuclear energy. It demonstrates how the nations in the nuclear age have come to depend on the IAEA to provide means for cooperation and to act as an agent for their safety and security. The author, a political scientist, traces the origins and operation of the Agency from 1945 to 2013, showing how the organization's role developed from primarily fostering cooperation among nations to acquiring power over them. The work is supported with extensive endnotes and a comprehensive bibliography.
