India`s Military Modernization: Strategic Technologies and Weapons Systems is the second part of a two-part project on Indian military modernization. It examines the nature and the trajectory of India`s evolving capabilities in areas of advanced technologies: cruise missiles, nuclear weapons, anti-satellite weapons, missile defence, and information-based warfare. The book finds both continuity and change in India`s evolving strategic capabilities. The reactive nature of the Indian state tends to make the trajectory of India`s strategic programmes incremental. Owing to the absence of clear direction from the highest level of government and to inertia, changes are likely to be characterized by slow improvements and limited changes in institutional capacities and capabilities for the policy-relevant future. In addition, the non-inclusion of the military in crafting national strategy and national security decision-making serves to limit the scope for a dramatic transformation in India`s strategic capabilities. In sum, the modernization of India`s strategic capabilities is likely to be uneven and incremental. Printed Pages: 264.
