Barnâme-ye enerzhi-ye atomi-ye iran: talâsh-hâ va tanish-hâ (Iran’s Atomic Energy Program: Mission, Structure, Politics).
Interview with Akbar Etemad, the first president of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (1974-1978). 1997.
This interview for the atomic energy program in Iran was conducted in London during several sessions at the end of the summer of 1995. It revolves around three underlying themes: organization and management of nuclear energy in Iran, constraints of working within the non-proliferation regime, and the wisdom of opting for nuclear energy in an otherwise energy resource-rich country like Iran. These general topics constitute the rubric within which the myriad questions and answers in the text of the interview achieve their particular intellectual and political flavor.
