    The recent nuclear deal between India and the US is also indicative of how energy and power politics are linked and how these new inter-linkages underlie relations between states. Rulers and politicians have often taken advantage of the gravest problem, communal conflicts, as the author remarks. India, having backed the loser in the Cold War, likewise had no difficulty developing better relations with the US after the collapse of the Soviet Union. We should remember— we live in an anarchic international system when our survival is at risk, there will be no night-watchman or to rescue us.

    It is a detailed narrative of US relations with three key countries of the region: India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Chapter 1 recalls how the Deccan Peninsula was formed throughout millions of years, and the significance of the mountains and rivers that have emerged — suffice it to remember such names as the Himalayas, the Rives Indus in the west, or the Ganges and the Brahmaputra in the east. A plethora of opportunities were missed by Sri Lanka to enhance its strategic relationships in the IOR due to the prolonged conflict with the Tamil Tigers that lasted nearly three decades. By Jakub J.

    He finds that the great powers' success or failure was shaped in part by the location of resources, the layout of trade networks, and the stability of state boundaries. It tells the stories behind some of its most sensitive aspects, including Beijing's support for Pakistan's nuclear program, China's dealings with the Taliban, and the Chinese military's planning for crises in Pakistan. Finally, the last subchapter of the book sums up the theory of politics of reactions, which often explains the history of the region after the Sepoy Mutiny, and which basically states that the power has always yielded too late and too little the British to Nationalists, the Indian Congress to Jinnah and the Muslim League, West Pakistan to East Pakistan but he does not see this alternative interpretation of history underpinned. The water management debate between India and Bangladesh is described here as well, as the Farakka barrage built near the Bangladesh border has an adverse effect on the water quality and quantity of the River Ganges arriving in the country, exacerbating floods in the flood-prone country, as some experts claim.
