The Nuclear Axis: Secret Collaboration Between West Germany and South Africa

By Barbara Rogers and Zdenek Cervenka
Times Books, 1978
488 pp. $12.50
Purchase

While convincingly recounting the saga of clandestine nuclear collaboration between West Germany and South Africa (adding new documentation to the previous investigative reporting of Der Spiegel), the authors' allegation that the Federal Republic is using the South African link to acquire nuclear weaponry lacks a smoking gun. Added starters include extensive information on West German and South African nuclear links with other "pariah powers" - Israel, Iran and Brazil - as well as on U.S.-South African nuclear cooperation.
