This book has been lucidly written by an ex-IFS officer. The Prologue sets the context in which this great piece of work is to be read. I would certainly keep this book in high regards since it does not take a biased stand while evaluating the Foreign Policies of some of India's ex-PMs. A must read for those who are interested in Foreign Policy and History. Its a great amalgamation of both.
A brilliantly written book by a seasoned diplomat, who is known for his straight talking style, and expresses himself in a highly lucid and convincing language, which makes it a great pleasure to read his books.
This is a very well written book explaining concisely the current position of India in the world. It's a brief history of the circumstances that led to where India is right now and what more we'll be required to do to go forward. But, mind you this book doesn't paint a glossy picture at all. Rather it includes a lot of criticism of decisions taken by all the Prime Ministers in terms of foreign affairs of the country, even though Rajiv Dogra Sir tried not giving a biased picture.
The book was thought-provoking as it briefed me on many issues that are affecting us even more now. To be specific, issues such as Kashmir, China, and Pakistan. It becomes more relevant as it even conveyed suggestions and strategies on diplomatic relationships with other countries.
The best part of the book is that it's not tilted towards any political wing, leaving the rightness of the decisions to be judged totally by the readers.
