Product Description

On 1 October 1949, the People's Republic of China came into being and changed forever the course of Asian history. Power moved from the hands of the nationalist Kuomintang government to the Communist Party of China headed by Mao Tse Tung. All of a sudden, it was not only an assertive China that India had to deal with but also an increasingly complex situation in Tibet which was reeling under pressure from China.

Clearly, newly independent India, with Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru at its helm, was navigating very choppy waters. Its relations with China progressively deteriorated, eventually leading to the Indo-China war in 1962. Today, more than six decades after the war, we are still plagued by border disputes with China that seem to routinely grab the headlines. It leads one to question what exactly went on during those initial years of the emergence of a new China. And, more importantly, why have we repeatedly failed to arrive at a solution?

Based on years of meticulous archival research, this book in fascinating detail, analyses the events from 1949 to the Indo-China war in 1962 and its aftermath to explore the answers to these burning questions.

Bhasin's latest book, "Nehru, Tibet and China" using official documents, shows the bumbling and naivete that accompanied Indian policymaking on Tibet and China in the run-up to 1962.There are few authors and historians better placed than Avtar Singh Bhasin to recount a history of India-China relations, starting from the early 20th century.Many books have been written about Jawaharlal Nehru, the Dalai Lama and China. What is different with Avtar Singh Bhasin's just released, Nehru, Tibet and China, is that it has a fresh perspective on the Nehru regime and India's relations with China, strongly supported by hitherto unpublished documents from the Union ministry of external affairs and the Nehru papers.

The book is credible and authentic and the narrative is passionate. A powerful
addition to books of its kind, it will educate the reader and add value to a library.
