TITLEIndia's Emerging Nuclear Posture: Between Recessed Deterrent and Ready Arsenal
CITYSanta Monica, CA

This 900-page book provides a detailed description of India's emerging nuclear posture in the aftermath of the May 1998 nuclear tests in India. It provides an assessment of India's strategic interests, institutional structures, and security goals. The effect of possession of nuclear weapons on India's relations with its neighbors, China and Pakistan, and the ongoing dialogue with the United States are presented. The book uses what the author, Ashley Tellis, considers the best Indian sources on issues concerning its nuclear weapons; Tellis also had extensive access to serving and retired Indian officials, military officers, and scholars. While it was prepared for U.S. policy makers and the U.S. Air Force, the work will also interest the wider national security community, regional military and intelligence analysts, and academics in general. An extensive bibliography of almost one hundred pages and many explanatory footnotes are included.
