Summary
The book explores in pictures the balance between the IAEA's work as a nuclear watchdog and rigorous advocate for safety and security and its mission in helping developing countries use advanced science for humanitarian benefit. Issued at a time of unprecedented international interest in the Agency, it addresses the fundamental concepts that underlie the work of the IAEA and its "Atoms for Peace" mission. It also describes the historical evolution of the IAEA, illustrating the successes and challenges that have shaped the organization over the past half century. Key events including President Eisenhower's "Atoms for Peace" speech, the establishment of safeguards regimes, the international response to the Chernobyl accident and the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005 as well as the ongoing activity and endeavor in fields ranging from sustainable energy production to human health, are covered--Publisher's description
