What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

'As China rises and America responds, questions of nuclear strategy will become increasingly central to their relationship, and the risks of nuclear rivalry and confrontation will grow. Andrew O'Neil's outstanding book provides vital insights into the central, and potentially very dangerous, role that nuclear weapons will play in shaping Asia's strategic future. It is lucid, authoritative, and very important to anyone trying to understanding where Asia is heading.'Hugh White, Professor of Strategic Studies, Australian National University
