The controversial pursuit of nuclear power is rarely out of the news, especially when it concerns the Middle East. The recent attempts to negotiate the stalemate between the rhetoric emanating from Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Israeli concern about Iranian nuclear capacity is but an example of the nuclear diplomacy that both Middle Eastern states and international organizations employ. The Nuclear Politics of the Middle East offers a comprehensive look at nuclear energy issues in the region from the construction of the Dimona site in the Negev to the more recent diplomatic wrangling over the possibility of Iranian nuclear weapons. Matteo Gerlini charts both the pursuit of nuclear capability as well as the efforts of international organizations to manage nuclear proliferation, making this book vital for those interested in the current affairs of the region as well as students of diplomacy and international relations in the Middle East.
