The Atomic Bazaar: The Rise of the Nuclear Poor by William Langewiesche

With The Atomic Bazaar, William Langewiesche not only tells the history of nuclear proliferation, but how it is spreading to third world nations who understand that possessing nuclear weapons provides attention, respect, and intimidation. He explains the massive amounts of nuclear fuel that survived the breakup of the Soviet Union, and how just a small amount of that is necessary to build an atomic weapon. He also tells the story of Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan, father of the Pakistani nuclear program who then sold his knowledge to whomever wanted to pay for it, and Mark Hibbs, an American journalist who writes exposés about nuclear proliferation. The Atomic Bazaar has received mostly positive reviews with the Christian Science Monitor saying, "There is no other way to say it: This is an important book - an urgent book - that plainly confronts the likelihood of Pakistan or India or Iran or North Korea or a stateless terrorist clique initiating a war by using a nuclear weapon."
