Publisher rushes release of ElBaradei book

By Stephen Lowman

elbaradei.jpgEvents in Egypt are moving too quickly for the publishing schedule of Metropolitan Books. The publisher announced today that it is moving up the release of “The Age of Deception: Nuclear Diplomacy in Treacherous Times” by Mohamed ElBaradei, a key opposition leader in the country’s week-old pro-democracy demonstrations.

The book, which was originally planned for June, will now be published April 26, the publisher said.

“In Egypt this past week, Dr. ElBaradei has again shown the world his commitment to democracy, human dignity, and peace,” said Sara Bershtel, publisher of Metropolitan Books, in a press release. “His book reveals a long career of independent thought, integrity and courage – the qualities Dr. ElBaradei has displayed so dramatically over these last days.”

ElBaradei, 68, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, headed the International Atomic Energy Agency from 1997 to 2009. In “The Age of Deception” he writes about the diplomatic efforts to quash the nuclear ambitions of countries such as Iraq, Iran and North Korea.

Metropolitan made the book deal in March 2010.
