The triadic relationship between India, Pakistan and China and their nuclear weapons policies is analyzed in this volume.

The three countries have been evaluated on their strategic culture, the role of nuclear weapons in their overall military strategy, the nature of public opinion, responses to the various arms control treaties, and foreign policy choices.

The book highlights how these countries, with their different political systems, act on crucial issues like deterrance, proliferation, weaponization, foreign policies and the use of the bomb.
