The Carter and Reagan administrations set aside concerns about the spread of nuclear weapons in order to win Pakistan's assistance in a covert war against the Soviet Union, a policy that snowballed as the U.S. continued to turn a blind eye to Pakistani nuclear trafficking after 9/11, and has seriously compromised both U.S. and world security. Drawing on exclusive interviews, classified records, and secret government records, and secret government reports, this book provides an entirely new persepctive on the so-called A.Q. Khan nuclear black market scandal.

I felt so ignorant after reading this book. Jumbo was and still is the most famous elephant in the world, and I knew next to nothing about him before reading this book. The book was very well researched and sadly ends not long after Jumbo's demise. I'd like to have seen one more chapter to reflect on Jumbo's effect on elephants of today.
