Summary Twenty years after acquiring nuclear weapon capabilities, ties between Pakistan and India remain strained. This new report is the latest in a series of Stimson publications that provide fresh and important insights into the various chapters of crisis and brinksmanship in South Asia - from the 1986-7 Brasstacks crisis, the 1990 crisis, the limited war in 1999 in the heights above Kargil, the 2001-2 'Twin Peaks' crisis, and the 2008 assaults on Mumbai. Michael Krepon addresses the trends and consequences of this series of crises. What have the two protagonists taken away from these events? Have the lessons shaped their behavior and their understanding of each other in subsequent crises? How can US policymakers contribute to regional stability, even while US relations with Islamabad and Delhi are on such different trajectories?
