India is entering a new stage of technical sophistication in its nuclear force development as it moves beyond its reliance on air-delivered nuclear gravity bombs to make the short-range Prithvi missile model the core of its operational nuclear arsenal. India's nuclear policy in the last fifty years is the saga of a nation which has tirelessly pursued a steady objective in a world of narrowing options. The objective has always been complete disarmament, particularly nuclear disarmament. The objective remains the same today, even after India exercised its nuclear option. The point to remember is that all other options were explored in right earnest and that India arrived at this particular option only after exhausting all other options in its quest for enhanced national security. This book contains the fundamental and basic information of the subject and useful for teachers, students and researchers.
