About this Item: Foundation Books/Cambridge University Press, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: New. Written by a professional in the Pakistani Army who played a senior role formulating and advocating Pakistan?s security policy on nuclear and conventional arms control, this book tells the compelling story of how and why Pakistan?s government, scientists, and military, persevered in the face of a wide array of obstacles to acquire nuclear weapons. It lays out the conditions that sparked the shift from a peaceful quest to acquire nuclear energy into a full-fledged weapons program, details how the nuclear program was organized, reveals the role played by outside powers in nuclear decisions, and explains how Pakistani scientists overcome the many technical hurdles they encountered. Furthermore, the book reveals how international opposition to the program only made it an even more significant issue of national resolve.
