Nuclear Deterrence In Southern Asia: China, India And Pakistan
Nuclear Deterrence In Southern Asia: China, India And Pakistan
Description
From the Jacket:

Since the time both India and Pakistan conducted their nuclear tests in 1998, anew strategic scenario has emerged in Southern Asia involving not just these two countries but also China. This has altered the security architecture of Asia as a whole, and has given rise to a unique triangular relationship. This 'triangularisation' of nuclear power calls for new understanding which go beyond the bilateral dialogues of the erstwhile Cold War era.

In this important and topical book, Arpit Rajain examines the triangular relationship of China, India and Pakistan through the prism of nuclear deterrence. He highlights the interplay and role of strategic culture, nuclear weaponisation and deployment, command and control, arms control, non-state actors and foreign policy issues which affect relations between the three countries.

With two main purposes - a conceptual investigation into the notion of deterrence, and a study of the theory and practice of limited war - this book
o addresses the strategic, political and military dimensions of the role of nuclear weapons through examples of the only cases of nuclear weapon states having gone into armed conflict - the Cuban missile crisis, the Ussuri river clashes and the Kargil conflict;
o discusses the various pressures exerted on decision makers in the context of the notions of deterrence, the rational deterrence model, and a limited war under a nuclear umbrella;
o evaluates all three countries with regard to their strategic culture, the role of nuclear weapons in their military strategy, the nature of public opinion and political rhetoric, responses to the various arms control treaties, and foreign policy choices.

Based on a variety of sources, including interviews with key individuals in various sectors, this is the first book-length study of the triangular relationship between China, India and Pakistan. It will attract the attention of all those interested in security issues, arms control and disarmament, foreign policy and international relations.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.

I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
