    Description

    The book answers questions on India’s thoughts about the nation’s policy and approach regarding China. It takes us back to 1962 when China decided to invade India when the nation was not expecting it.

    Summary of the Book

    In 1962 China unexpectedly invaded India despite having made peace with our nation. This has led to the discussion in this book as to how Pandit Nehru confidently made the assumption that China would not invade India. It also discusses whether the same mistakes are being repeated now, and whether India has learnt anything from that attack. This book is an analysis and a warning on India’s policy regarding China as it turned out to be a real failure. It is an investigation on our approach and policy based on Nehru’s letters to his officers, correspondence and chief ministers.

    Excellent piece by AS

    Must read book for people interested in Indian policy towards China-How it is and How should it be. The book starts with brief overview of the current UPA's policy towards China, then elaborates on Nehru's ill conceived China strategy in the past, further speaks on India vis-a-vis China on many parameters and ends with lessons, stratagems that must be employed to counter Chinese threat.

    It was an eye opener, Pakistan is a milder enemy than China

    I started this book and it take quite some time to sink what NEHRU has done to this country, Perhaps anyone who will read this book would get to know that Nehru was either a fool or a traitor.. China policy is same almost as it was 1n 60s, they have become real superpower in all senses and we have been left to nothing in front of them. Those who have heard ARUN SHOURIE speak will be able to better understand this book because the contents are really deep and thought provoking. If u want to bu...

    Eye Opener!

    At first I felt that Shourie criticises our first PM just for poilitical gimmick. But after reading the book I realized that he does it for a reason! And each reason is backed by numerous undeniable facts. Thank you Mr Shourie for such fabulous work!

    Outstanding insight of India China relationship

    Mr. Shourie took me on a journey which gave insight into India-China relationship.

    Right from the start he builds a strong case to explain that Indian leadership must develop a focused, result oriented and synchronized long term strategy to defend our borders. As we read on he nicely explains new military doctrine of PLA and lessons that India can learn. Make no mistakes, Mr. Shourie doesn't just talk about Military strength of India and China but he talks a lot about foreign policy, diplom...

    A MUST READ

    Much of India's foreign policy in Asia has been shaped by India China relations.The disastrous policy followed earlier and lack of a firm initiative on this all important relationship has harmed India immeasurably.This book points out that things are not static,China is I(India's northern neighbour and unless we keep up the defence entente,the point would come where India is " blown off the map".This is the natural way of events.Whilst India need not have an aggressive foreign policy,it mus...
