Book Description
About the Book

India-Pakistan relations have remained crisis-prone over the last decade. But the crisis emanating from the another Brasstacks Exercise (1986-87) was the most serious. It carried within it the most imminent likelihood of another Indo-Pak war.

The key findings are that the Brasstacks-related crisis probably led Pakistan to "weaponize" its nuclear program; that India might have had larger, open-ended goals; that intelligence available to India, Pakistan, and the United States was substantial, but became questionable at critical junctures; and that established hotline communications between India and Pakistan were not used as they were suspected of being misused for deception purposes.

Many prescriptive suggestions have been offered to avoid such Indo-Pak confrontations in the future. This study also draws attention to what remains presently unknown about the decision-making processes in the three countries during the Brasstacks crisis.
