Conflict and Diplomacy: East Pakistan Becomes Bangladesh delineates East Bengal s long, complicated, and agonising journey from being an integral part of India to East Pakistan, finally to Bangladesh. This reordering of human lives tightly compressed in time inevitably culminated in trauma, generating several new geo-political stress lines of enormous power in the subcontinent. The authors, Jaswant Singh and Maj. S.P. Bhatia, lead the readers along this twisted and torturous path of the birth of Bangladesh under Indian midwifery, intrigued by West Pakistani and the US diplomacy. The declassified US documents provide revealingly informative aspects of the US diplomacy during this challenging period. The excerpts of diplomatic exchanges between Delhi Washington Dhaka, Dhaka Washington, Islamabad Washington, and the off-guard internal conversations of the political and diplomatic string pullers are sure to fascinate and interest the readers.

Jaswant Singh has come a long way from his home in the desert districts of Rajasthan. Commissioned in the Indian Army when barely nineteen, he went through two wars whilst in service (1962 and 1965) before resigning his commission to pursue a political career. He has served seven terms in Parliament, and, in the BJP-led governments of 1996 and 1998-2004, held charge of six ministries of the Government of India, including External Affairs, Defence and Finance. Regarded as an authority on Indian foreign policy and national security, Jaswant Singh is among the most respected names in the country's public life, and in the world of diplomacy.
