Description:

This book is a critical study of the nuclear and deterrence-related security dilemma of Pakistan vis-à-vis India. It recapitulates the different facets of its strategic dimensions in view of the growing conventional and strategic asymmetry. It critically examines some key issues like: NPT; nuclear command and control; the BMD system; Pakistan’s nuclear posture of credible minimum deterrence; the Kashmir conflict; Pakistan’s approach to biological weapons non-proliferation regime; and the role of tactical nuclear weapons in future offensive-deterrence planning—from a Pakistani perspective. In the twenty-first century, Pakistan faces multiple threats—military-cum-non-military in parallel with its weak economic, diplomatic and regional clout vis-à-vis India. This situation was further aggravated as a consequence of the negative effects on Pakistan of the Indo–US nuclear agreement and their strategic partnership. Consequently, Pakistan’s policy of strategic posturing has manifestly shifted toward comparative risk taking with intent to strengthen its deterrence against India. Moreover, in order to make its deterrence more vibrant and effective, Pakistan had initiated sophisticated strategic measures in the realm of restructuring and reinforcement of its command and control and export control regimes. In addition, it calibrated its nuclear posturing on a more ambiguous pedestal. In this backdrop, the book endeavours to unravel a whole gamut of issues that are by default linked with this policy.

Synopsis: Nuclear Pakistan is a critical study of the nuclear and deterrence-related security dilemma of Pakistan vis-à-vis India. It recapitulates the different facets of its strategic dimensions in view of the growing conventional and strategic asymmetry. It critically examines some key issues such as NPT, nuclear command and control, BMD system, Pakistan's nuclear posture of credible minimum deterrence, Kashmir conflict, Pakistan's approach to biological weapons non-proliferation regime, and the role of tactical nuclear weapons in future offensive-deterrence planning - from a Pakistani prism.

In the twenty-first century, Pakistan faces multiple threats--military-cum-non-military in parallel with its weak economic, diplomatic and regional clout vis-à-vis India. This situation was further aggravated as a consequence to the negative effects of the Indo-United States Nuclear Agreement and the Strategic Partnership on Pakistan. Consequently, Pakistan's policy of strategic posturing has manifestly shifted toward comparative risk taking with intent to strengthen its deterrence against its adversary--India. Moreover, in order to make its deterrence more vibrant and effective, Pakistan had initiated a sophisticated strategic measures in the realm of restructuring and reinforcement of its command and control and export control regimes and, in addition, calibrated it's nuclear posturing on more ambiguous pedestal. In this backdrop, the book endeavours to unravel a whole gamut of issues that are by default linked with this policy.
