Nuclear Weapons, Indian Strategy, and International Politics

(p.271) 5 Nuclear Weapons, Indian Strategy, and International Politics
Political Science

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses key concerns in the literature on nuclear weapons produced outside India and analyses the history of India’s nuclear policy. It suggests that while Indian scholarship has made significant contributions, it has been focused mainly in South Asia and remains limited to contemporary policy analysis without much effort at generating or testing international relations theory. It also highlights the need for Indian literature to focus on issues such as India’s approach to global nuclear issues and the relationship between nuclear weapons and military strategy.

Keywords:   nuclear policy, India, nuclear programme, South Asia, policy analysis, international relations theory, global nuclear issues, nuclear weapons, military strategy
