Reviews and Awards
"A top flight collection of essays on one of the most controversial and sensitive topics in both Middle East politics and studies of nuclear proliferation in general...provides a great overview of how the current situation has come about, and how regional actors are likely to press ahead in the medium and longterm future. A solid multidisciplinary investigation into a key global issue."--Christopher Davidson, Reader in Middle East Politics at Durham University
"Combining theoretical perspectives with rich empirical insights, this superb volume offers a comprehensive exploration of nuclear dynamics in a rapidly changing Middle East. The research is well-organized, well-written and highly nuanced--an elusive combination. The authors are informed by a deep historical sensibility, yet are also forward looking in their analyses. In particular, the chapters on the domestic sources of nuclear decision-making will be of immense value to specialists and policymakers grappling with the still-unfolding implications of the Arab revolts and Iran's nuclear ambitions."--Frederic Wehrey, Senior Policy Analyst, RAND Corporation and author of Coping with a Nuclearizing Iran (RAND, 2011).
"While the world watches Iran, and tries to guess how many nuclear weapons Israel has, nuclear programs are being developed across the Middle East. The timely message in this valuable study of the current situation is that the Middle East is going nuclear whether the world likes it or not."--Jeremy Salt, Department of Political Science at Bilkent University (Ankara), and author of The Unmaking of the Middle East. A History of Western Disorder in Arab Lands
"By combining theoretical with rich empirical insights, this volume offers a comprehensive exploration of nuclear dynamics in rapidly changing Middle East. The research is well-organized, well-written and highly nuanced." -- The Muslim World Book Review
