INDIA’S NUCLEAR POLICY:
by BHARAT KARNAD:
Foreword by Stephen P. Cohen PRAEGER:





This book seeks to reveal the workings of India’s nuclear strategy and posture.
It deals not so much with the theory or the evolution of Indian thinking on “minimum
deterrence,” which has been tackled comprehensively in a previous book
by the author,2 as with the translation of the “credible minimum deterrence” concept
into a militarily sustainable stance—in other words, with the nitty-gritty of
realizing a credible, effective, and survivable thermonuclear force. Nineteenninety-
eight, the year India resumed nuclear testing, was a watershed. Other than
proving to be something of a dam-burst of desire for the bomb among the nuclear
have-not states, in India the deliberately ambiguous notions of “recessed” or
“non-weaponized” deterrence prevailing until then were shoved aside by the
real-world concerns about how to deter potential adversaries and with what
armaments, strategy,and tactics. Weaponization by autopilot—the process of
nuclear arms development and acquisition initiated and managed by the senior
scientists at the nuclear complex in Trombay (near Bombay or Mumbai) with
only vague directions from, and supervision by, the government gave way to
more institutionalized decision-making, involving other agencies, including the
Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) in the Defense Ministry
and the Armed Services. The ad interim strategizing by the nuclear scientists,
who originally propagated “minimum deterrence” featuring a small
number of basic weapons, was supplanted by the more sophisticated and elastic
concept of “credible minimum deterrence” (CMD). Professional deliberations
involving the newly founded National Security Council and its various arms,
such as the National Security Advisory Board, the Strategic Policy Group in
the Department of Atomic Energy, and the Strategic Forces Command, fleshed
out this concept over the years.

Staggering Forward: Narendra Modi and India’s Global Ambition:



Analysing Prime Minister Narendra Modi's foreign and military policies in the context of India's socio-political and economic milieu, which has evolved between 1991 and 2014, this book offers a critical perspective that helps to understand the country's present national security strategy.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
READ COMMENTS ON THIS BOOK FROM SHIVSHANKAR MENON: India’s national security adviser till 2014 AT FOLLOWING LINK:

The Reality of Narendra Modi's Foreign Policy Failures Laid Bare


What worries me most is that if Bharat Karnad is right, we can only expect more of the same – or worse – should Modi return to power in 2019. That would further postpone or derail India’s transformation into a strong, prosperous and modern country.
