Praise for Israel and the Bomb
Tom Segev, Ha'aretz
"This is an extraordinary important book. Cohen has produced an amazing piece of historical scholarship
on a subject deliberately shrouded in clouds of misdirection, for legitimate raison d'etat, by both
Israeli and American governments…"
"Dr. Cohen provides a compelling and comprehensive account of the development of
what he calls Israel's doctrine of 'nuclear opacity.'"
"Avner Cohen has managed to to gain access to the Kennedy-Ben Gurion and Kennedy-Eshkol
correspondences in their entirety. He is thus able to present for the first time a chapter in the history of
the young state of Israel-and of the USA-Israel relationship--which is known to only a very few individuals in both countries to date.
One of the true thrillers in modern history."
