Summary
A global history of U.S. nuclear espionage from its World War II origins to today's threats from rogue states. Since 1952 the nuclear club has grown to at least eight nations, while others are making serious attempts to join. Each chapter chronologically focuses on the nuclear activities of one or more countries, intermingling what the United States believed was happening with accounts of what actually occurred in each country's laboratories, test sites, and decision-making councils. Intelligence scholar Richelson weaves recently declassified documents into his interviews with the scientists and spies involved in the nuclear espionage, revealing new information about U.S. intelligence work on the Soviet/Russian, French, Chinese, Indian, Israeli, and South African nuclear programs; on the attempts to solve the mysterious Vela Incident; and on current efforts to uncover nuclear secrets of Iran and North Korea. Includes spy satellite photographs never before extracted from the National Archives.--From publisher description
