New On The Bookshelf: Deception

Today, I received an advance copy of Deception: Pakistan, the United States, and the Secret Trade in Nuclear Weapons, a new book by reporters Adrian Levy and Catherine Scott-Clark of the Guardian and the Sunday Times. It’s bound to be controversial, as it asserts that the United States knew that Pakistan had developed nuclear weapons and sold the technology to North Korea, Libya, and Iran, and the US said nothing. The past five administrations, the authors tell us, continued to portray Pakistan as an ally while they sold nuclear secrets to our enemies.
The book gets released at the end of the month. I’ll try to get the authors onto Heading Right Radio for an interview, if possible. I’ve still got to pick up Shadow Warriors at some point, which I put aside for Dinesh D’Souza’s What’s So Great About Christianity?. I will have a review of that book, hopefully tomorrow, and Dinesh D’Souza will be my guest on Monday’s Heading Right Radio.
I want to thank Captain’s Quarters readers who have used the Bookshelf and the search widget there and on my sidebar for their Amazon shopping. It has bolstered the tip jar and helped buy a few things for the blog and the family.
UPDATE: Hey, whoever bought the Garmin nĂ¼vi GPS Navigator through the Bookshelf — thanks!

  1. Ed,
    Gordon Corera in his Shopping for Bombs about the A.Q. Khan network said that the CIA found the Chinese blueprints for a missile-ready plutonium implosion warhead while rifling his suitcase during the Reagan adminstration. This tends to confirm the contention of Levy and Scott-Clark in their Deception: Pakistan, the United States, and the Secret Trade in Nuclear Weapons.

  2. I haven’t heard much about Dinesh D’Souza’s book, but I gather it’s the practical view of what Christianity has to offer the World, based on history and statistics. And using little or none of that circular logic that books like this fall into if the author’s not careful.
