In this Essential category, Operate Forward book, investigative journalists Douglas Frantz and Catherine Collins tell an alarming tale of international intrigue through the eyes of the European and American officials who had suspicions about Pakistani nuclear scientist A.Q. Khan, tracked him, and ultimately shut him down, but only after the nuclear “genie” was out of the bottle. This well-researched book tells the story of how Khan managed to steal enough nuclear secrets to give Pakistan atomic weapons and then to go into business selling atomic secrets to Libya, Iraq, Iran, North Korea and others. The Man From Pakistan provides an excellent foundation of knowledge for one of the greatest threats confronting the United States in the 21st century. It explains the origin of the emerging nuclear proliferation threats in North Korea and Iran as well as technical descriptions of the process of manufacturing nuclear materials into weapons-grade materials. It offers valuable lessons for Navy personnel who must confront this threat as they operate forward in an increasingly dangerous environment.
