For the first time, the Nobel laureate and "man in the middle" of the planet's most explosive confrontations speaks outon his dealings with America, negotiations with Iran, and the prospects for a nuclear-free futureWhen the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency elected an unknown lawyer as its director, few could have predicted the role Mohamed ElBaradei would play in the most high-stakes conflicts of our time. Contending with the Bush administration's assault on Iraq, the nuclear aspirations of North Korea, and the West's standoff with Iran, ElBaradei emerged as a lone independent voice, unique in maintaining credibility in the Arab world and the West alike. For their efforts to control nuclear proliferation, ElBaradei and his agency received the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize.Now, in a vivid and thoughtful account, ElBaradei takes us inside the nuclear fray. Inspector, consultant, and carrier of messages, he moves from Baghdad, where Iraqi officials bleakly predict the coming war, to behind-the-scenes exchanges with Condoleezza Rice, to the streets of Pyongyang and the trail of Pakistani nuclear smugglers. He dissects the possibility of rapprochement with Iran, all the while rejecting hard-line ideologies of every kind, decrying an us-versus-them approach, and insisting on the necessity of relentless diplomacy. "We have no other choice," ElBaradei says, "the other option is unthinkable."The Age of Deceptionis an unparalleled portrait of society's struggle to come to grips with the insecurities of the nuclear age.
