The nuclear test explosions in India and Pakistan in 1998, followed by the outbreak of hostilities over Kashmir in 1999, marked a frightening new turn in the ancient, bitter enmity between the two nations. Although the tension was eclipsed by the events of 9/11 and the subsequent American attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq, it has not disappeared, as evidenced by the 2001 attack in the Indian Parliament by Islamic fundamentalists out of Kashmir. By 2002, these two nuclear-armed neighbors seemed to be once again on the brink of war. This book outlines the strategic structure of the rivalry and the dynamic forces driving it, and investigates various possible solutions. The expert contributors focus on the India-Pakistan rivalry, but also consider the China factor in South Asia's nuclear security dilemma. Although essentially political-strategic in its approach, the book includes coverage of opposing military arsenals and the impact of local terrorism on the delicate balance of power.

Review:

"Professor Dittmer has assembled a stellar group of contributors to this excellent volume. Both 'deterrence optimists' and 'proliferation pessimists' know that South Asia's tripolar nuclear balance is fraught with complexities that could ultimately eventuate in mass tragedy. Asian security specialists of all stripes will profit from reading this exemplary collection. The book does a particularly fine job of factoring the oft-neglected 'China factor' into the subcontinental nuclear equation. Unlike too many edited volumes, this one is cohesive and well-written throughout."
