TITLEThe Age of Deception: Nuclear Diplomacy in Treacherous Times
PUBLISHERMetropolitan Books
CITYNew York, NY

In this book, Mohamed ElBaradei, the director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) from 1997 to 2009, presents the Agency’s evolution from an obscure group of technicians into an influential international organization. He focuses on the IAEA’s successes and failures in dealing with nuclear proliferation in Iraq, Iran, Libya, and North Korea. One chapter describes the proliferation network of Pakistani scientist A. Q. Khan. Elbaradei's views and policies for controlling proliferation were often at odds with those of the United States and other Western nations, since he fervently advocated for diplomacy as the major approach to preventing nuclear proliferation. The narrative suggests that the Western nations have often followed policies that have caused non-nuclear states to pursue nuclear weapons rather than working to prevent proliferation.
