Review

interesting and revealing. (Bruce Kent, The Spokesman)

Review

'A page turner.' (The Economist)

'Gordon Corera has written a book you will not be able to put down. It reads like a thriller, but it is true! He has done an impressive job in researching and describing the extraordinary threat we face from nuclear weapons falling into the hands of those who wish us to harm.' (Professor Joseph S. Nye, Harvard University)

'Shopping for Bombs is clearly written and fascinating account of one of the most important episodes in the history of weapons of mass destruction-Pakistan's illicit successful effort to build nuclear materials across the globe, an effort spearheaded by the maverick scientist A.Q. Khan. Corera has produced an even-handed and absorbing history of that important story.' (Peter Bergen, author of The Osama Bin Laden I Know and Holy War, Inc.)

'A superb account of how A.Q.Khan, the pioneer of nuclear black marketeering, exploited the forces of globalisation and loopholes in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to provide what IAEA Secretary-General, Mohamed El-Baradei, called "Wal-Mart of private sector proliferation".' (Professor Graham Allison, Harvard University) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
