This book offers the most comprehensive account of the diplomacy and domestic politics behind this nuclear agreement. Domestic politics considerably impeded—and may have entirely prevented—US nuclear accommodation with India- when domestic obstacles were overcome, US–India negotiations advanced- and even after negotiations advanced, domestic factors placed conditions on and affected the scope of US–India nuclear cooperation. Such a study provides new insights into this major event in international politics, and it offers a valuable framework for analyzing additional US strategic and nuclear dialogues with India and with other countries.
