India and Pakistan: Bargaining in the Shadow of Nuclear War

Title:India and Pakistan: Bargaining in the Shadow of Nuclear War
Authors:Sumit Ganguly and R. Harrison Wagner
Publication:Journal of Strategic Studies / Frank Cass Publishers, part of the Taylor & Franci
Enumeration:vol. 27, no. 3, pp. 479-507, September 2004
Abstract:Based on the experience of the Cold War, some scholars hoped that the introduction of nuclear weapons into South Asia would promote peace between India and Pakistan. Instead, nuclear weapons made Pakistan less fearful of India's conventional military forces, and therefore help explain recent conflicts between them. Moreover, US expressions of concern about the possibility of inadvertent nuclear war in South Asia may have provided an incentive to both sides to be intransigent in order to elicit US intervention.
