Dr. George Perkovich, author of India's Nuclear Bomb: The Impact on Global Proliferation (University of California Press: 1999), gave a thought-provoking presentation on India's nuclear history. He expounded on India's distinct, largely status-drive calculus on nuclear weapons, and the country's sensitivity to perceptions of foreign interference on sovereign decisions.
