Stephen Philip Cohen, the scholar who virtually created the field of South Asian security studies, has curated a unique collection of the most interesting and important articles, chapters, and speeches from his fifty-year career. Cohen, often described as the dean” of U.S. South Asian studies, is a dominant figure in the fields of military history, military sociology, and South Asia’s strategic emergence.

This exceptional collection includes material that have never appeared in book form, including Cohen’s original essays on the region’s military history, the transition from British rule to independence, the role of the armed forces in India and Pakistan, the pathologies of India-Pakistan relations, South Asia’s growing nuclear arsenal, and America’s fitful (and forgetful) regional policy. These original writings show how Cohen developed a still-relevant theory of regional conflict, and how his views evolved over the years tracking the development of South Asian security studies.

From the Inside Flap:

Stephen Philip Cohen has been many things to the universe of South Asian security analysis: scholar, institution builder . . . , mentor, possessor
of contrary opinions, media favorite, innovator, and entrepreneur of projects and programs. . . . [H]e is, most importantly, our teacher.”
Swarna Rajagopalan, writer and social entrepreneur and a former graduate student, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Covering the years 1962 to 2011, this volume includes the most provocative and important writings from Stephen Cohen’s fifty-year career of observing South Asia as a professor, as a government official, and, since 1998, as a scholar at the Brookings Institution. Several pieces have never been published in book form.

The author begins with a critical look at his past writing where he was right, and where he was wrong followed by original essays on the region’s military history, the transition from British rule to independence, the role of the armed forces in India and Pakistan, the pathologies of India-Pakistan relations, South Asia’s growing nuclear arsenal, and America’s fitful (and forgetful) regional policy.

Often described as the dean of South Asian security studies, Stephen Cohen is a dominant figure in the fields of military history, military sociology, and South Asia’s strategic emergence, including American relations with India and Pakistan. These original writings, drawn from over 150 essays, articles, chapters, and published speeches, show how he developed the most
authoritative theory of regional conflict and how his views evolved over the years while tracking the development of South Asian security studies.

About the Author:

Stephen Philip Cohen is a senior fellow in the India Project within the Foreign Policy program at Brookings. He joined Brookings after a career as a professor of political science and history at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he created the world’s first program devoted to South Asian security studies. He was a member of Secretary of State George Shultz’s policy planning staff during the Reagan administration between 1985 and 1987. In 2004 he was named by the World Affairs Councils of America as one of America’s 500 Most Influential People in the area of foreign policy.
