Book Description:

As more countries develop nuclear weapons, the effectiveness of the bomb as a deterrent reduces. The author discusses this proliferation with regard to the options open to the USA naval forces. Using India, Iran and Libya to present these scenarios, the author discusses whether these countries are immune to superpower intervention or, rather, immune to the purported benefits of nuclear deterrence. Therefore, would proliferation limit options previously available to the USA?
