Host Harry Kreisler welcomes author Avner Cohen to discuss his new book "The Worst-Kept Secret: Israel's Bargain with the Bomb." Tracing the history of Israel's nuclear weapons program, Cohen explicates Israel's nuclear doctrine of amimut (opacity) analyzing its implications for Israel's democracy and for Israel's international engagement. Cohen argues that in the post-911 world, the doctrine conflicts with the norms of the international system and the effort to adapt non-proliferation to the realities of the 21st century. He concludes with an analysis of the threat posed to Israel if Iran succeeds in acquiring nuclear weapons. (#20889)
