Beyond the Security Dilemma

Explaining Indo–Pak Relations

Deadly Impasse: Indo–Pakistani Relations at the Dawn of a New Century by Sumit Ganguly, New Delhi: Cambridge University Press, 2016; pp xi+176, 395

History has proved wrong those who believed that partition of British India on religious lines would bring peace in postcolonial South Asia. Immediately after the formal division of territories between India and the newly created state of Pakistan, problems began between the two countries over the issue of Kashmir. These two nuclear powers, despite facing similar socio-economic problems, have failed to learn the art of coexisting peacefully. They have fought wars, blamed each other, and shown little commitment towards good neighbourly relations. The latest book by Sumit Ganguly, an established authority on India–Pakistan relations, delves into the complexities of the deep-seated, long-standing rivalry between the two nations. It is a blend of theory and empirics, without being a heavy read for the reader with little knowledge of international relations.
