"This book makes the novel case that what is apparently the IAEA's greatest weakness—its counterintuitive dual mandate of sharing nuclear knowledge and technology while hoping to deter nuclear weapons programs—is, in fact, central to its success. But Inspectors for Peace is more than the history of an institution; it is the history of an institution in action. Roehrlich, a world-class authority on the history of nuclear nonproliferation, has written an original and scholarly treatise, elegantly framed and eloquently written. This pathbreaking opus on the IAEA is poised to become the leading historical reference in the field."

"Aiming at a wide readership interested in nuclear issues, including students, scholars, journalists, commentators, and general readers, this very welcome book fills an important gap by providing a comprehensive history of the IAEA from its foundation to the present. It places the agency in the broader context of the search for a nuclear order that would make it possible to exploit atomic energy for peaceful purposes while also avoiding nuclear war."
