Summary
"This edited volume explores competing perspectives of the impact of nuclear weapons proliferation on the South Asian security environment." "The spread of nuclear weapons is one of the world's foremost security concerns. The effect of nuclear weapons on the behaviour of newly nuclear states, and the potential for future international crises are of particular concern. As a region of burgeoning economic and political importance, South Asia offers a crucial test of proliferation's effects on the crisis behaviour of newly nuclear states. This volume does not take a single position regarding nuclear weapons' effects on the South Asian security environment. Rather, it creates a dialogue between scholars who believe that nuclear weapons have stabilized the subcontinent and those who believe that nuclear weapons have made South Asia more conflict prone."--BOOK JACKET
