Whistleblowers and The Bomb: Vanunu, Israel and Nuclear Secrecy

by Yoel Cohen
£21.99   paperback  Pluto Press (2005)

Whistleblowers and The Bomb: Vanunu, Israel and Nuclear Secrecy by Yoel Cohen Mordechai Vanunu, a technician working at a nuclear arms research project, revealed to the world in 1986 that Israel was secretly producing nuclear weapons. After his disclosure was published in the Sunday Times, Vanunu was kidnapped by Mossad, tried behind closed doors and imprisoned for 18 years for treason. He was finally released in 2004.
This new edition of Yoel Cohen's acclaimed account of the Vanunu affair offers a timely reassessment of the world-famous whistleblower and the questions he brought to light. Cohen is one of the few people to have interviewed Vanunu since his release. Drawing on this interview, and using first-hand material from the trial, the book is thoroughly revised and updated. Cohen provides a rare glimpse into official attitudes to nuclear secrecy in Israel, and a devastating analysis of the problems that nuclear secrecy raises in any democracy.
