Etel Solingen, political science professor at UC Irvine, is receiving positive attention from international policymakers and the press for her recent book, Nuclear Logics: Contrasting Paths in East Asia and the Middle East. A range of experts have praised the book, including former UN chief weapons inspector Hans Blix, who called it a “valuable and timely contribution” to the debate over curbing nuclear-weapons proliferation. Solingen also has been invited to speak on nuclear issues at the Fondation pour la Recherche Stratégique (Paris), the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Foreign Ministry (Moscow, Russia), the Center for Security Studies at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (Zurich), Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and UCLA’s Burkle Center for International Relations, among many others.
