In this book, a leading authority on Indiaas nuclear program offers an informed and thoughtful assessment of Indiaas nuclear strategy. He shows that the countryas nuclear-strategic culture is generally in accord with the principle of minimum deterrence, but is sometimes inconsistent and has a tendency to drift into a more open-ended process. He addresses areas of concern, notably the relationship between minimum deterrence and subnuclear conflict, the threat from nuclear terrorism, and the special challenges nuclear weapons pose for a democratic society.For typically one-sided views that fail to consider the latter, see Bidwai and Vanaik, South Asia on a Short Fuse, pp. 159a67 ...
