Minimum Deterrence and India's Nuclear Security

4.11 - 1251 ratings - Source

In this book, a leading authority on Indiaa€™s nuclear program offers an informed and thoughtful assessment of Indiaa€™s nuclear strategy. He shows that the countrya€™s 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. 159a€”67 ...
