Description: "Published in cooperation with the Georgetown Center for Strategic and International Studies, this collection is not another theoretical contribution to small power motivation and strategic capacity, such as Sheila Harden's Small Is Dangerous or Marshall Singer's Weak States in a World of Powers. Although it offers a wealth of forecasts for potential conflicts, leadership motivations, and military capabilities in several emerging regional powers, this volume's real purpose is to remind us that 'although typically rooted in local causes and ... rivalries ... conflicts (in these countries) frequently injure Western interests and foster the extension of Soviet power and influence.' Although the book provides fascinating glimpses into command and control of nuclear forces in China, deployment of Soviet aircraft in India, and remilitarization in Mexico, the ideological narrowness of its framework detracts from consideration of questions salient to these nations' perceptions of their security interests. What are the likely consequences of military modernization on civilian control of the armed forces in Mexico? Will US-Soviet nuclear arms control efforts placate Indian security concerns? Will Chinese economic development lessen the motivation of the People's Republic of China to deploy a nuclear second-strike capacity? Recommended only for highly specialized military studies collections." Choice
