In the wake of disclosures relating to Pakistani nuclear scientist A Q Khan’s involvement in the illicit nuclear trade, the book focuses on Pakistan, a country closely linked to the global nuclear underworld. Documenting for the first time the role played by the Pakistan Army in the illegal nuclear trade, it warns the global community of the possible threat of terrorist groups like al Qaida exploiting smuggling networks to procure nuclear materials.
The investigation clearly establishes the conspicuous failure of non-proliferation regimes, the ambivalent policies of western nations, and the existence of nuclear smuggling networks.
