Nuclear Strategy of India and Pakistan : An Overview

"The Nuclear doctrine of State of Pakistan (otherwise referred as Option-enhancing Policy (Oep); or simply: Nuclear doctrine), is a theoretical concept of military strategy that promotes the deterrence by guaranteeing an immediate `massive retaliation' to an aggressive attacks against the state. India today is believed to possess an arsenal of some 100 nuclear weapons, though this figure is highly uncertain. The country is thought to have produced close to 600 kilograms of weapons-grade plutonium, though it is unclear whether all this material has been machined into warheads. The Indian nuclear project though has been full of contradictions given the wide nature of its scope ranging from strategic ambiguity to overt nuclearisation. Indian nuclear policy has in effect been a microcosm of the reconciliation between its purported civilisational heritage of moralpolitik and aspiration to acquire greater standing in the world order. As the book addresses this crucial issue quite deftly, it is hoped that it would prove to be a source of great information for the reader. It an essential reading for the students taking courses on this book."
