Description

A comprehensive analysis of the management of the security challenges faced by India during the last half century.

The author traces the origins of the Indian strategic culture, its civilizational and cultural roots and the strength and weaknesses of Indian nationhood. The book traces the evolution of Indian armed forces from the earliest, pre-Islamic times to the British periods and includes an examination of the Maratha and Sikh phases as well as the post-independence changes.

There follows an analysis of military operations in independent India and the leadership's ability to manage conflicts. The management of the country's resources, its budgeting on defense and the question of whether of whether independent India has spent wisely and effectively on its armed forces and defense during the last 50 years are also analyzed. The author finally identifies some of the major challenges of tomorrow.

This is the first time that a senior political figure of India has tackled this challenging theme.
