With depth and insight, Dr. Moeed Yusuf urges the international community to rethink its approach to nuclear deterrence. All cold war nuclear crises involved one or both superpowers and were shaped by their competition. Dr. Yusuf offers an innovative theory of brokered bargaining to better understand and solve regional crises. Drawing on the history of conflicts between nuclear Pakistan and India, during the Kargil (1999), the Twin-Peaks (2002) and the Mumbai (2008) crises, Dr. Yusuf describes the potential for third-party intervention to avert nuclear war. Moving beyond the widely accepted rational deterrence model, Dr. Yusuf offers an original perspective rooted in a thoughtful analysis of the ways regional powers behave and maneuver in response to the pressures of strong global powers.
