Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
"Strategic," for the purposes of this volume, relates to nuclear power. These 12 essays, assembled at the University of Georgia Center for International Trade and Security, discuss aspects of the sorry state of U.S.-India diplomacy. The book is divided into three sections: "Broad Strokes on the Strategic Canvas," "Security and Nonproliferation Issues," and "The Regional Context." The second section includes recommendations for the governments in question to follow in order to improve relations. Because the contributors are so diverse, there is some duplication of content; particularly annoying is an excessive use of acronyms, which requires constant consultation of the glossary. Sadly, no contributor appears to have studied the personalities that have made relations between the two countries so acidic for 50 years. Only highly specialized libraries dealing with nuclear issues will want this title.--Donald Johnson, Univ. of Minnesota Lib., Minneapolis Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
