DECEPTION Pakistan, the United States, and the Secret Trade in Nuclear Weapons

by | Read by Richard Poe

Contemporary Culture • 21.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

A.Q. Khan set about to learn and procure nuclear bomb technology for his native country, Pakistan. He secretly purchased and imported raw materials and specialized equipment from European and American suppliers to build his weapons. Narrator Richard Poe's rendition makes a long and detailed book agreeable for listeners by suiting his demeanor to what is being said, and modifying his voice to become incredulous, angry, doubtful, or sad. He also rolls off the abundant Arabic and Urdu names with ease and fluency. Poe avoids long pauses to set off quoted material, instead using vocal inflections that signify a change from the author's words to those of another. This history of a nuclear theft explains why Pakistan poses such a threat to the world today. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
