Dossani and Rowen (both of Stanford U.'s Asia-Pacific Research Center) present 13 papers that evaluate the prospects for conflict and peace between India and Pakistan, two nuclear powers long at odds with each other over the control of Jammu and Kashmir. The politics of the two countries are examined separately, with papers addressing factors for each, including religion and its influence on civil society and politics, the role of the army as a political force, and the two countries nuclear weapons capabilities. The role of US diplomacy is also a major issue that is discussed, especially in relation to the nuclear doctrines of the region. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
