Nuclear tests in India and Pakistan brought the threat of nuclear war back to the world's centre stage. The tests and nuclear moves have raised regional tension, increased poverty in already impoverished nations, and could possibly have fuelled an arms race which goes beyond the borders of the two countries. This text examines the causes and consequences of India and Pakistani nuclear tests. The book provides a framework for understanding the global context of these tests, and looks at approaches for nuclear abolition in Asia and the West.

PRAFUL BIDWAI and ACHIN VANAIK are both Fellows of the Transnational Institute (TNI) and the authors of Testing Times: The Global Stake in a Nuclear Test Ban. Arundhati Roy won the Booker Prize in 1997 for her novel The God of Small Things.

Reviews

'Not since EP Thompson has the illogic, inhumanity and complacency of the nuclear status quo been so brilliantly laid bare.' --The Independent 'I have never seen a better account of the weaknesses, perils and immorality of security policies based on threats of mass destruction.'--Bruce Kent, CND
