9781138878891: Cold War in the High Himalayas: The USA, China and South Asia in the 1950s

This text examines elite-insecurity perceptions in India, Pakistan and the USA in the 1950s. The book highlights the consequent linkages in alliance-building efforts and the  subsequent triangular covert collaboration against Communist China, especially along Tibet's Himalayan frontiers. This secret alliance had an unexpected fall-out on the Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan.  Lastly the book examines the divergence of Indo-Pakistani security policies along fundamental cleavages since the 1960s.
