Editorial Reviews

"War and Peace in Modern India is international history at its very best: broadly researched, tightly argued and with new interpretations on nearly every page. Raghavans book uses precisely the approach that the much under-studied international history of India needs." -- O. A. Westad, Professor of International History, London School of Economics and Politics, UK   "In this important and readable new book, Srinath Raghavan breaks new historical ground with a thorough and acute analysis of Nehru's foreign policy, demonstrating the subtlety and confidence with which he approached the various crises he faced as India's Prime Minister until he was caught out by China." -- Sir Lawrence Freedman, Professor of War Studies and Vice Principal, King's College London, UK
