Now available from The Simons Centre for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation Research

In July 2005, the United States and India announced a bold agreement to restore nuclear co-operation. The deal was immediately controversial, engendering opposition in both countries on national security grounds and from arms control advocates anticipating dire consequences for the non-proliferation regime.
