Nuclear Power in India: A Critical History is an unbiased account of the trials and tribulations faced by Indian scientists while working on the country's nuclear power programme, engrossingly tracing how engineers had to come not just technical snags, but also political ambitions, before they succeeded in testing two powerful nuclear bombs in 1974 and 1998. The world did not take kindly to India's nuclear ambitions and the technical and monetary assistance it had been receiving from other nuclear states abruptly ceased. Sanctions were placed on the country, severely incapacitating its ambitious dream of entering the coveted by nuclear club. All further work on the country's nuclear arsenal and power plants were delayed until the Indo-US nuclear deal. Nuclear Power in India is a fascinating history of the country's valiant attempts to make a niche for itself in world politics.
