About this Item: Pointer Publishers, 2001. Hardcover. Condition: New. It presents an exhaustive analysis of terrorism in Kashmir, the North-Eastern states and Punjab besides left-wing terrorism. We find a revealing expose of the machinations of the ISI and the threat of pan-Islamic fundamentalism. The authors show that ad hoc responses in the nature of fire-fighting do not lead us anywhere. That is why, in spite of having killed thousands of terrorism that deals and arrested several times more, we are still nowhere near controlling terrorism that defines a political, police or military solution. Here the authors develop a comprehensive strategy for counterinsurgency, followed by an enunciation of the crucial tactical concepts that will ensure victory in our war against terrorism.

About this Item: Manas Publications, 2014. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. Contents: Preface. 1. How a fond dream turned into a nightmare? 2. Fake encounters and foisted cases: courts bash up the monster. 3. Boundless barbarity in all that they do. 4. Slammed by the courts nowhere to hide. 5. Abuse of laws and legal processes to harass the common man. 6. Professional issues that the police leadership has failed to address in 150 years. 7. Counterinsurgency operations expose the Achilles heel of the police leadership. 8. Ignorane in forensic matters and the miscarriage of justice. 9. The absence of integrity courage and intellectual honesty. 10. Tyranny of the intellectually bankrupt. 11. Do we see a ray of hope and how? A select bibliography. Index. Police and the medical profession are two services to which people to only when they are in acute distress of some kind. Unfortunately, they seldom get succor from the police. The inaction of the police, their apathy, or their abuse of power is all the more reprehensible because people in distress are in no position to argue with them. A major part of the blame for this sorry state of affairs lies on the shoulders of the police leadership. The institution of direct recruitment to the All India Services was created with many fond hopes mainly that by virtue of being intellectually superior, they would contribute to the service much better than what subordinate officers could do even after putting in a number of years in service. The dream has however not come true. The intellectual contribution of the police leadership to the service and the profession for its betterment has been abysmal. Police apathy and abuse of power are not aberrations attributed to a few deviant individuals, this is very much a systematic failure. The system has failed because the leadership has failed. The leadership suffers both from a lack of moral authority and the sensitivity needed to address the real issue of abuse of power by their subordinates. This emboldens them and they commit more atrocities thereby creating a vicious circle. (jacket). Seller Inventory # 112235

About this Item: Pointer, 2017. Hardcover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) and Taliban are almost daily in news. We must know everything about them because they are likely to expand their activities into India also. Already some 22 young, highly educated Indians have left the comforts of their homes to fight and get killed for the ISIS. Media provides only fragmented information, making people harbour all sorts of myths. This book tells you everything including: • What they are; what is their ideology; what is their objective; why are they opposed to the West; • What are they doing; what atrocities they are committing; how do they treat women; • What explains their appeal which makes people leave their homes and travel thousands of miles to fight for them; • What is Wahabism/Salafism; what is meant by jihad and the jihadists; what is radicalization and de-radicalization; what is the role of the madarsas with regard to terrorism; • How do they get their arms and armament; how do they get the funds they need and how the world can disrupt those sources; • How the Western world and the USA have made a mess of the Middle-East and the Syrian Civil War; • How the Taliban are making a comeback even after 16 years of relentless bombing by the Americans; what are the prospects of a Taliban victory; • And finally, can the world expect to get rid of the ISIS and Taliban or, are they here to stay? Whether you are a lay man, a student, a homemaker, a media person, a policy-maker, or a man in the armed forces, the comprehensive knowledge contained within the pages of this book will ensure that when the need arises, we may respond in a correct manner.

About this Item: Pointer Publishers, 2017. Hardcover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. Contents: Preface. 1. Nuclear weapons and deterrence. 2. Nuclear stand-off between India and Pakistan. 3. Starting in the face of Chinese Nukes: issues of concern. 4. North Korea: the quintessential bête noire. 5. The danger from Israel’s nuclear weapons. 6. Iran: a nuclear Wannabe.7. Analysis of a China-USA clash scenario. 8. Nuclear muscle of the United States of America. 9. Russian nuclear might and their predicaments. 10. The spectre of nuclear terrorism. 11. Busting popular myths regarding the effects of nuclear weapons. Bibliography. Index. Nuclear weapons are there to stay forever. Nations may keep on talking of disarmament, universal peace and development but still keep a fearsome inventory of nuclear weapons. The USA, even as its military power is unchallenged in the world, is still spending a whopping $ 1000 billion on the modernization of its nuclear weapons—other nations are bleeding themselves dry anyway. It is because no one can guarantee that nuclear weapons would never be used. Had that been the case, there was no point of keeping them in the first place. No one should believe that whatever that is too horrible to think of cannot happen. This means that in future wars, nuclear weapons can indeed be used and we must be prepared for it. It is therefore imperative that we must analyze the subject of nuclear weapons and international security comprehensive in all its dimensions. This is what this book does. The notions which you have derived from TV, films of popular articles are all wrong. This nuclear scientist, busts all the myths associated with the business of wars and nuclear weapons. In one cover, this book provides comprehensive and absolutely authentic information on the nuclear weapons and policies of North Kores, Israel, Iran, China, Pakistan, USA, Russia, England, France and India. Indians of all the people in the world, cannot afford to be not interested in nuclear weapons because we are surrounded by two hostile neighbours who are both nuclear powers. (jacket).

About this Item: Aavishkar Publishers, 2014. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. India has a very long history of wars and warfare. Our kings and badshahs were always dressed with a sword and habitually fought with their neighbours almost every year. Still, quite ironically, they could never achieve any high standard in the art of war. When foreign invaders came, they almost always lost to them. The history of India would have been different had we not lost at the hands of Arab invaders, Muhammad Ghori, the Mughals, Nadir Shah, Abdali and the British. We must know what was wrong with our military system? Why did we lose repeatedly at the hands of invaders? This question must agitate the mind of every Indian, whether a student of military history and science or a lay man. This book answers all these questions and more. It covers all the important battles of India in the ancient, medieval and modern periods, including: • Mauryan age • Gupta age • Arab invasions • Mahmud Ghaznavi and Muhammad Ghori • Sultanate period • Mughal Empire • Marathas • East India Company • Mutiny of 1857 It is the most exhaustive book on military history and science in the whole world.
