Two well-known scholars examine India`s search for a major role in the international system. Central to the argument is India`s belief that the acquisition of an independent nuclear capability is key to obtaining such status. The book details the constraints at the international, domestic and perceptual levels that India has faced in this endeavor and concludes that systemic and domestic changes will be necessary before it can achieve its goal. Given recent developments, the book is extremely timely. Its incisive analysis will be illuminating for students and policy makers.
