A Debate to Remember

The US-India Nuclear Deal

Chaitanya Ravi

  • The book differs from the security-centered contemporary literature on the nuclear deal in its adoption of a constructivist perspective.
  • Is the most in-depth analysis of the impact of the US-India nuclear deal and the US-India strategic partnership on the Iran-Pakistan-India pipeline and Iran-India relations.
  • Unique in terms of its sustained focus on the role played by retired nuclear scientists in India in influencing the final Indian negotiating position and the terms of the nuclear agreement.
  • Analyzes how specific technical questions such as the civil-military status of the fast breeder reactors and India's position on nuclear testing were shaped by the victors of debates in India.
  • Will also help the reader understand the diverse actor-networks and coalitions in India cutting across political, strategic, scientific and media communities that banded together to support or oppose the nuclear deal.
