This book examines whether India is successfully integrating and adapting to the global strategic management system. It offers essential insights into the evolution of export controls for goods which may have implications for the development of Weapons of Mass Destruction, which are especially relevant given India's robust biotechnology, chemical and nuclear industrial base. In security studies, the phrase "strategic trade management" is now slowly replacing the phrase "export control". However, for the policymaking community, the older phrase, i.e. export control, is still popular, at least for the sake of reference.The book also describes the mechanisms India is adopting in this regard. It demonstrates the shift in the Indian approach to strategic trade management, moving from a strong critic to a supporter. Politically, the country was initially skeptical of the idea of export controls because it was a target of such a system. The book also explains the tools, the forces and the incentives because of which India has decided to evolve its policy vis-a-vis export controls or strategic trade management.
