Dr. Carlo Patti

Brazil in the Global Nuclear Order (1945-2018) is the first comprehensive and definitive history of the Brazilian nuclear activities and diplomacy. Carlo Patti provides an in-depth explanation of the decision to give up the nuclear explosive option and to accept nonproliferation norms after decades of opposition. This book reveals how Brazil cooperated with a large number of countries and set up a secret nuclear program. It shows how U.S. nonproliferation policies deeply affected Brazil’s decisions.
Patti draws on recent declassified primary sources collected during years of research in public and private archives in eight different countries, and interviews with former presidents, diplomats, and scientists
