Overview

"While there exists literature on different aspects of Indo-Pakistani relations, there has been no comprehensive study of the two nation's crisis behavior in the nuclear age. This book fills this gap. It is also the first to take systematic account of the role played by the United States in South Asia's security dynamics over the past two decades in the context of unipolarization, and formulates a blueprint for American policy towards a more positive and productive India-Pakistan relationship." This important and topical study will appeal to a wide audience ranging from political scientists, foreign policy specialists, military personnel, researchers and scholars of strategic studies, diplomats, journalists, and the interested lay reader.
