Format: Paperback
The book starts off as a good historical narrative of the issues involved; however, the writers extreme left wing tendencies soon become apparent
The book is basically a rebuke of India's nuclear weapon programme. The book would have been much better if the authors did not spend so much time criticising India for what is essentially an act of self defence. the writers fail to take into account India's security problems, as well as the problems it faces against terrorism. it also fails to speak of hostile comments made by Pakistani and Chinese officials thratening India

Format: Paperback
Arundhati Roy and Praful Bidwai are well known anti Hindu, anti India writers with prolific track record of biased vitriolic outbursts.

The central theme of the book is to take a few facts and put an overdose of fringe left opinions. The net result is to make India seem responsible for nuclear proliferation in the world.

The writers have tried to equate India with Pakistan. The fact that Indian nuclear program started as an Indian response after Indian defeat in Indo China war of 1962 and Chinese nuclear program has been very conveniently discounted.

This flaw alone seriously discounts any scholarship of the work. This book is suitable for preaching to the converted. If you are looking for another view point to the Indian nuclear program, you will be sorely disappointed.

Format: Paperback
Having used this text for University, I highly recommend this book for understanding what is happening in South Asia's nuclear arms race, particularly since it was printed after the nuclear test detonations by India and Pakistan in May 1998. Though the content is sometimes personal opinion, there is enough verifiable information in regard to the leadup, execution and aftermath of May 1998's tests.
