The Indo-U.S. Civil Nuclear Deal -- July 2005 is an epochal event setting the stage for India's tacit admission into the elite nuclear club of "Five". While opening the doors for India to the global nuclear energy market, the Deal will have far-reaching impact on regional as well as international relations. Some as China and Pakistan could see it detrimental to their security interests. Others as France and Germany, acknowledging India's rising power, have preferred to engage it. Within the two nations, India and the U.S., the opinions have been sharply divided. The U.S. non-proliferation community has attacked President Bush for opening a Pandora's box by cooperating with a state which possesses nuclear weapons but is non-signatory of the NPT. In India, concerns of sovereignty have overshadowed the sizeable gains accruing to the country in its quest for energy sufficiency. The articles in the present book place the entire debate on Indo-U.S. Civil Nuclear Deal in perspective by examining the background which led the Bush Administration to propose a change in the nuclear rules in favor of India, the range of deliberations that have followed and the final stages awaiting formal recognition. An attempt has been made to cover both the objective and subjective factors which have driven this nuclear debate. In addition to articles by erudite experts in the field of international affairs, the book also includes important documents relating to the Nuclear Deal -- speeches of the U.S. President, Indian Prime Minister, Senators, Congressmen, senior officials, the viewpoints of different countries, the NSG, and the IAEA Chief. The book is a seminal contribution to Indo-U.S. Relations and will prove invaluable to students and scholars of international affairs, strategic analysts, policy planners, diplomats, parliamentarians as well as common readers interested in contemporary world affairs.
