India's Nuclear Doctrine

V.N. Khanna (Author)
Synopsis At a time when the world is rife with speculation about India's nuclear programme.  India's Nuclear Doctrine presents an informed and lucid account of the country's nuclear policy since 1948, through Pokharan I and Pokharan II. Introduced with a foreword by an outstanding scientist and former Union Minister of Science and Technology, Prof. M.G.K. Menon, the book traces the origin and proliferation of nuclear weapons in the world beginning with the first test by USA in 1945, and the eventually cataclysmic use of the atom bomb over Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The author argues effectively that while remaining committed to its advocacy of complete nuclear disarmament, India is only too aware of its need to maintain nuclear deterrence so long as weapons of this nature remain with the other nuclear powers. World peace, however, is India's priority and the author makes a dynamic case for the claim that the weapons of nuclear India are no threat to international peace and security.
