The Islamic Bomb: The Nuclear Threat to Israel and the Middle East
The Islamic Bomb: The Nuclear Threat to Israel and the Middle East
By Steve Weissman and Herbert Krosney
Times Books, 1982, 339 pp

But the journalistic, breathless tone of the narrative and the uneven treatment of what is already known detracts from the overall credibility of the book.
