Wider Horizons Perspectives on National Security Strategic Culture Air Power Leadership and More
National Security involves multiple stakeholders working synergistically in a volatile and ambiguous security environment. In such a scenario, defence officers must develop multiple skill-sets to remain effective. Wider Horizon by Air Vice Marshal Arjun Subramaniam (Retd) is a commendable effort in pursuit of this larger objective. His passion for academic pursuit and research in areas related to military history and national security is praiseworthy.

Written with candour and clarity, Wider Horizons is a collection of published and unpublished articles and papers written by the author between 2012-2017 while still in service. Covering a truly astounding range of issues from national security, strategic culture, the India-China conundrum, air power, leadership, flight safety and surprisingly, a set of family travelogues, the book offers a peek into the restless mind of a fighter pilot-scholar. It is also a valuable contribution to understanding India’s armed forces better and hopefully, would bridge some of the existing gap that exist between the services and strategic policy makers.
