Defense and Insecurity in South Asia: Conventional Forces, Nuclear Programs, and Regional Stability

in Program

The essays in this collection describe an unsettled security environment in southern Asia. Concerns about stability on the Subcontinent now focus primarily on Pakistan’s internal troubles and future direction, as well as on India’s missile programs, which appear to be driven more by political and bureaucratic imperatives than by military necessity. The possible deployment by New Delhi of the Prithvi missile and India’s continued production of weapons-grade fissionable material makes restraint by Islamabad on these fronts difficult to sustain, both on political and strategic grounds.
