Nuclear Weapons and Arms Control in South Asia after the Test Ban (SIPRI Research Reports) by Eric Arnett


pdf epub fb2 djvu



This book examines an area of the world where nuclear arms control is almost non-existent - China, India and Pakistan - and takes the approach of considering the implications of conventional arms transfers, and in particular India's strategic defences, for nuclear stability. Building on an analysis of their internal politics and attitudes to nuclear policies, it concludes that certain apparently defensive systems and in particular counter-air systems have considerable implications for the retention of nuclear capabilities in the region.
