Statement of President George W. Bush regarding his intention to introduce National Missile Defence (NMD) has given rise to a lively discussion on the subject all over the world. In this book an attempt has been made to present the viewpoints of eminent experts from different countries, particularly those from countries directly affected by the NMD e.g. the United States of America, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, North Korea, India, etc.
It is hoped that the book would be of great value to the researchers and students of defence studies, parliamentarians, senior executives concerned with defence and the common readers.
