China, India, and the New Paradigm

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Global power is shifting to Asia. The U.S. military is leading an American "pivot" to the Indo-Pacific region. Asian "theaters" attract the bulk of global arms spending. China, India, and Pakistan are building up their nuclear arsenals—as the United States, France, and the United Kingdom are building down. China is by far the world's largest "market" for new nuclear energy production, and India aspires to be on a similar trajectory.

Yet, despite these trends, The China-India Nuclear Crossroads is the first serious book by leading Chinese and Indian experts to examine the political, military, and technical factors that affect their nuclear relations. Editor Lora Saalman produces a comprehensive framework for China and India to pursue to enhance cooperation and minimize the unintended consequences of their security dilemmas.
