Indian Nuclear Deterrence

Its Evolution, Development and Implications for South Asian Security

Zafar Iqbal Cheema

This study establishes, through incontrovertible documentary evidence, the fallacy of the conventional view that India's nuclear program entailed 'exclusively peaceful uses' during the Nehru era. Indian Nuclear Deterrence suggests that the BJP government's decision to carry out the May 1998 nuclear tests was not an original one, but a step within that strategic continuum. It also analyzes the dynamics of Indian nuclear deterrence, Indian nuclear doctrine and its implications for South Asian security.
