This book provides an international legal analysis of the most important questions regarding Iran's nuclear program since 2002. Setting these legal questions in their historical and diplomatic context, this book aims to clarify how the relevant sources of international law - includingprimarily the 1968 Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty and IAEA treaty law - should be properly applied in the context of the Iran case.

Editorial Reviews

"Professor Joyner's expert analysis of the legal and policy issues concerning Iran's nuclear program provides valuable insight for policy makers and the interested public, and devoid of ideological undertones that permeate many other recent publications on the matter. Independent and realistassessments as this one are a rarity and constitute a much needed public service in the interest of international peace and security." --Tariq Rauf, Former Head of the Verification and Security Policy Coordination Office at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
