This book describes India’s emerging nuclear posture in the context of a broader assessment of its strategic interests, institutional structure, and security goals. It seeks to explicate the prevailing attitudes towards nuclear weaponry among Indian security managers because such attitudes, more than anything else, will ultimately determinate New Delhi’s future decisions with regard to its doctrine, capabilities, and force posture.
Since the principal objective of this book is to prepare policymakers in particular and the India - Pakistan strategic community in general for prospective developments in these issue areas, a critical understanding, reconstruction, and synthesis of the "official mind" on key questions pertaining to nuclearization remain the most appropriate methodological device for assessing New Delhi’s strategic choices. The readers will be benefited greatly from extensive studies with important Indian and Pakistan political figures.
