Through the lens of a comprehensive survey of Pakistani public attitudes toward nuclear weapons policy, this volume provides an I in-depth view of the nuclear choices facing Pakistan. Based on the most thorough survey of Pakistani public opinion on nuclear policy ever conducted, Pakistan and the Bomb examines the factors that brought a de facto nuclear arms competition to South Asia.

A majority of the Pakistani elites surveyed support their country's official position of keeping the nuclear option open -- neither renouncing nuclear weapons nor acquiring them -- while almost one-third of those surveyed favored an overt policy of going nuclear. Fear of a possible threat from India is the principal factor underlying support for the nuclear option.

The chapters in the book examine the nuclear policy choices facing Pakistan, from nuclear abstinence to outright weaponization, and apply the findings of the public opinion poll to evaluate a level of popular support for each option. Pakistan and the Bomb offers a new vision for evaluating the nuclear standoff in South Asia and identifying the steps that can lead to a more secure, nuclear weapons free future.
