The Genesis of South Asian Nuclear Deterrence

Pakistan's Perspective

Naeem Salik

The Genesis of South Asian Nuclear Deterrence is an attempt to provide a complete picture of the dynamics of South Asian nuclearization. It covers the historic evolution of the technological developments of the Indian and Pakistani programs and the nuances of the countries' respective policies towards the international non-proliferation regime. The book also covers developments since May 1998 in the two countries with respect to the development and articulation of their nuclear doctrines, setting up of command and control systems and the creeping operationalization of their nuclear capabilities.
