The 50th anniversary of India's independence on August 15, 1997, has focused attention on various aspects of the country's experience of independence, and a similar but less pronounced bout of soul-searching has afflicted Pakistan as well. This book examines elite-insecurity perceptions in India, Pakistan and the USA in the 1950s, the consequent linkages in alliance-building efforts, subsequent triangular covert collaboration against Communist China, the unexpected fallout of this collaboration on the Kashmir dispute dividing India and Pakistan, and the subsequent divergence of Indo-Pakistani security policies along fundamental cleavages since the 1960s.
