National Security Perspectives: A Critical Anthology of Writings by Gautam Sen
An excellent anthology, deftly edited, with analyses of conceptual, policy and implementation challenges in national security, defence strategy and foreign policy … would be of value to both students of strategic affairs and practitioners of public policy.
P.S. Raghavan, Chairman, National Security Advisory Board
Professor Gautam Sen is one of the unsung high thinkers on security policy and strategic affairs in India. His recent work provides an Indian perspective on national and international Security Policy Making and has been ably and sensitively edited by Brigadier Gurmeet Kanwal. This volume is a must read for students and practitioners.
Dr. Onkar Marwah, IAS and a Distinguished Fellow at IPCS , New Delhi
Brigadier Gurmeet Kanwal has done a commendable job in editing some excellent and thought provoking essays written by Professor Gautam Sen over the last five years. Given their inextricable linkage, domestic and foreign, national security, economic and socio-political policies cannot be effectively framed or executed in silos. Thus this compilation should be most useful to scholars and policy makers alike.
Ronen Sen, Former Ambassador to the U.S.A., U.K., Germany, Russia & Mexico
Having read the papers published by Professor Gautam Sen earlier, Brigadier Gurmeet Kanwal has created the Critical Anthology of Papers which will be perhaps the first of its kind in National Security and Strategic Studies. It offers a multi-dimensional approach in an interdisciplinary methodology. It will be of use to everyone who wishes to understand the complexities of Public Policy Making in Security Affairs
