India's ad hoc Arsenal traces the evolution of the domestic dynamics of Indian defense policy since 1947. Chris Smith provides an in-depth analysis of defense policy from 1947 to 1962, a period often ignored by Indian defense analysts, and an evaluation of the performance of the defense industrial base. The author concludes that India's defense policy is designed more to achieve a great power status than to acquire security at an affordable price.
