"Why do some states that claim to support non-proliferation nonetheless refuse to support non-proliferation measures, such as sanctions against Iran? Michal Onderco's book provides an insightful window into this question, arguing that ideational considerations shape state foreign policy responses just as much as material factors. Onderco's book is an important work that informs the fields of nuclear politics and comparative foreign policy more generally." - Maria Rost Rublee, Australian National University, Australia "Michal Onderco's illuminating book describes the similarities and differences between the foreign policies of Brazil, India, and South Africa vis-a-vis the Iranian nuclear program. The reader learns a lot on how these rising powers view themselves in the future constellation of world politics." - Tom Sauer, University of Antwerp, Belgium
