About the Author
Mohamed ElBaradei served as Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency from 1997 to 2009. He was awarded the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize, together with the IAEA, and has also been honored with the Indira Gandhi Prize for Peace, Disarmament and Development; the Nile Collar; and the Roosevelt Institute's Four Freedoms Award. He earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Cairo and a doctorate in international law at the New York University School of Law. Founder of the National Association for Change, an Egyptian opposition movement, Mohamed lives in Cairo. David Drummond has made his living as an actor for over twenty-five years, appearing on stages large and small throughout the country and in Seattle, Washington, his hometown. He has narrated over thirty audiobooks for Tantor, in genres ranging from current political commentary to historical nonfiction, from fantasy to military, and from thrillers to humor. He received an AudioFile Earphones Award for his first audiobook, Love 'Em or Lose 'Em: Getting Good People to Stay. When not narrating, David keeps busy writing plays and stories for children.
Nobel Peace Prize laureate (2005) ElBaradei announced on March 9, 2011, his candidacy for president of Egypt; the election is scheduled for this fall. In this timely memoir, ElBaradei concentrates on the necessity of preventing the spread of nuclear weapons, especially into the hands of rogue states and terrorists, to ensure global survival. During his 12-year tenure (1997-2009) as head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), ElBaradei was a key participant in dramatic, headline-dominating confrontations over nuclear proliferation, most famously during the IAEA inspections in Iraq, which found no violations and no nuclear weapons. ElBaradei's principal themes are the need to strengthen the mandate and standing of the IAEA; to curb "sword-waving" by the world's great powers; and to emphasize diplomacy and collective security over nuclear proliferation. There is plenty of grist in this firsthand account, which will likely be the subject of lively, serious debate within world governments. Narrator and actor David Drummond's impressive, steady reading enlivens the material; for foreign policy wonks everywhere. [See Prepub Alert, 12/6/10.]-Dale Farris, Groves, TX (c) Copyright 2011.
