Deterrence: Theory and practice with special reference to Nuclear India and Pakistan

Theories of deterrence, which put forward propositions about the nature and mechanisms of  deterrence, were mostly developed during the first Cold War era (1945-1963) and dealt with the US-Soviet confrontation. The theory of nuclear deterrence is largely an American product, though there were significant British and French theorists. The troubled relations between India and Pakistan have been a rapidly evolving laboratory for nuclear deterrence theory. A review of the deterrence literature suggests several facets of deterrence theory that are relevant in the India- Pakistan context. Deterrence is an old phenomenon which received new significance with the development of the atomic bomb. Discussions of deterrence often start with a Roman proverb, Si vis pacem, para bellum: If one wants peace, prepare for war.
