As the world witnesses a flux in the nuclear world order—in terms of civilian nuclear energy as well as non-proliferation regime and legitimacy of nuclear weapons, India has a cautious path to tread to achieve its energy security, nuclear security and make its disarmament calls more plausible and practical. The challenges before the global nuclear order have vindicated India’s position and bestowed it with an opportunity to play a more confident and active role in reshaping the world—towards a more reliable, democratic and universal non-proliferation regime, preventing nuclear terrorism, forming a better architecture for civilian nuclear trade, and finally to evolve practical and universal steps towards comprehensive disarmament. This insightful book, with contributions by leading experts on the nuclear issue in India, covers all such important aspects and provides robust analysis of the global nuclear order in terms of its implications for India and global disarmament.


Arvind Gupta is member of the Indian Foreign Service. Presently he holds the Lal Bahadur Shastri Chair in Defence and Strategic Studies at the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses (IDSA), New Delhi. He is Director of Studies at the Indian Pugwash Society.
