Reviews

'Why did Australia pursue nuclear weapons, then give up the chase? And what lessons can we learn from this little known story to better understand current nuclear dynamics, particularly in East Asia? Exploiting a variety of declassified documents, Leah provides compelling answers to these important questions. Australia and the Bomb should become the standard work on the how and why of Australia's nuclear decision-making and why it matters today.' - Francis J. Gavin, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA
