Strategic Asia 2013–14: Asia in the Second Nuclear Age

Strategic Asia 2013–14

Book | Oct 2, 2013

Strategic Asia 2013-14 Volume Launch


On October 2, 2013, the thirteenth volume in the Strategic Asia series was launched at the George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs.

Part of NBR’s two-year initiative “Approaching Critical Mass,” Strategic Asia 2013–14: Asia in the Second Nuclear Age examines the role of nuclear weapons in the grand strategies of key Asian states and assesses the impact of these capabilities—both established and latent—on regional and international stability. In each chapter, a leading expert explores the historical, strategic, and political factors that drive a country’s calculations vis-a-vis nuclear weapons and draws implications for American interests.
