South Asian Crisis: India, Pakistan and Bangladesh

South Asian Crisis: India, Pakistan and Bangladesh

By Robert Jackson

Praeger (for the International Institute for Strategic Studies), 1975, 240 pp.

Jackson's account of the interplay of regional and great-power diplomacy in the crisis of the subcontinent is graceful, lucid and shrewd. His analysis is a model of its kind and, as he notes, has ominous implications for world stability in a future where secession will be a threatening specter for more than a few states.
