Gauging U.S.-Indian Strategic Cooperation

Gauging U.S.-Indian Strategic Cooperation - Cover

Edited by Mr. Henry D. Sokolski.

March 2007

428 Pages

Brief Synopsis

This volume consists of research that the Nonproliferation Policy Education Center (NPEC) commissioned and vetted throughout 2006. For at least half of the chapters, authors presented versions of their work as testimony before Congressional oversight committees. No matter what one’s point of view, these chapters deserve close attention since all are focused on what is needed to assure U.S.-Indian strategic cooperation succeeds. The volume offers U.S. and Indian policy and law makers a detailed checklist of things to watch, avoid, and try to achieve.
