Weapons of Mass Destruction: Options for India
Weapons of Mass Destruction: Options for India
Description
From the Jacket:

Nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, or Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), present a serious danger in today's world. This pertinent and topical volume takes a hard-headed look at the threat that India could face from these weapons.

A great deal of literature exists on international regimes and their attempts to curb the proliferation of WMD. For a number of years the national effort seemed to be confined to relying solely on these international regimes to ensure the safety of the nation. This book is groundbreaking in that it concentrates more on the protection of society and the armed forces against both state and non-state actors armed with WMD, and less on the international regimes. Additionally, the book offers a detailed checklist for the formulation of a national strategy to protect the people of India from WMD agents, while suggesting a counter proliferation strategy. With contributions from leading analysis in the field, some of the important issues that are discussed here include:

  • The danger that WMD pose to governments and to the populace at large.
  • The actual threat of WMD and the scenarios that India needs to guard against.
  • Whether India faces a greater WMD threat from state or non-state actors.
  • The possible protective measures that can be undertaken to guard against these threats.
  • The position that the Indian government needs to take in international for a while addressing international initiatives to prevent the use of WMD.
Unique in its content, among the strong points of this volume is the detailed description of efforts required to set up material and human resources to respond to such catastrophes. With its comprehensive converge of both practical and policy issues, it will attract the attention of scholars, defense strategists and serving personnel in the armed forces.

About the Author:

Rear Admiral Raja Menon retired in 1994 as Assistant chief of Naval Staff (Operations). He is visiting lecturer at all institutes of higher study of the Indian armed forces and was instrumental in organizing the first nuclear management course for Indian service officers.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
