Product Description

HASSAN ABBAS is professor and chair of the department of regional and analytical studies at National Defense University, Washington, DC.

In this inside view of Pakistan's nuclear programme, Hassan Abbas profiles the politicians and scientists involved in the development of the country's nuclear bomb, and the role of China and Saudi Arabia in supporting its nuclear infrastructure. Drawing on extensive interviews, the book also examines Pakistani nuclear physicist A.Q. Khan's involvement in nuclear proliferation in Iran, Libya and North Korea, and argues that the origins and evolution of the Khan network were tied to the domestic and international political motivations underlying Pakistan's nuclear weapons project, and that project's organization, oversight and management. This insightful study lays bare, for the first time, the connection between the making of the Pakistani bomb and the proliferation that ensued, establishing important guidelines for nuclear security in the future.

Finally, the book examines the prospects for nuclear safety in Pakistan in the light of the country's nuclear control infrastructure and the threat posed by the Taliban and other extremist groups to the country's nuclear assets.

A masterly history of Pakistan's nuclear weapons programme. Abundant with new historical evidence and theoretically nuanced (challenging traditional dogmas), Abbas has produced what may well be a definitive account of Islamabad and the bombThis is the most comprehensive study to date of why and how Pakistan got the bomb and proliferated. Beyond state actors-including China, Iran, North Korea and Libya-Abbas scrutinizes the role of individuals, including A.Q. Khan, in the making of Pakistan's nuclear programme and its "dissemination"An important, realistic book that addresses many issues, and one major international problem in particular: Pakistan's proliferation of nuclear technology. Focusing on both the activities of the state as well as A.Q. Khan, this research deserves wide scholarly and policy attentionHassan Abbas presents one of the best defences of Pakistan's military as he lays out details of Dr A.Q. Khan's personal network, selling nuclear knowledge and technology to Iran and North Korea. Whets the reader's appetite for more investigation into nuclear proliferation by Pakistan
