Asian Defence Review 2008-2009
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380502045; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
With the shift of global power from West to East, we have entered the era of an Asia-centred century. The rise of China and India, the recovery and resurgence of Russia on one side and Japan on the other, and the nature of the international order are leading to enormous changes. Changes in the military, economic and political dynamics of Asia are accelerating. Historically, changes in the international order and equations of power among nations have been almost inevitably accompanied by conflicts and wars. The challenge ahead of the international community in general and Asian countries in particular would be how to ensure that this is avoided, and competition, so necessary to shaping the future, is managed below the levels of armed conflict. This is crucial for most countries like India so that their comprehensive national development can progress without adverse developments. In order to work toward such goals, it is necessary to look at security and military-related issues as objectively as possible.This volume, a resource base for the professional and the general reader, is the third in the series of the annual publication of the Centre for Air Power Studies under this title, which aims to fill a critical information and knowledge gap in current strategic literature dealing with military strategy, defence politics and trends in military capabilities that impact countries in Asia. In particular, it covers some of the important areas that affect Asian countries and the developments in Asian countries, with a focus on China, India and Pakistan, to provide the requisite regional balance.Printed Pages: 280. 104416

Asian Security In the 21st Century
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8186019200 / 9788186019207; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Momentous changes have been taking place in the global and Asian security parameters in recent years. The sudden and devastating financial crisis which swept East Asia in 1997,the continuing problems of economic restructuring in Russia, the perennial war in Afghanistan, the emerging challenges of energy security, trans-national terrorism, the continuing reliance on nuclear weapons, the transition of India and Pakistan across the nuclear threshold in May 1998(followed by their limited border war in Kargil in May-July1999) are only some of the more urgent issues of security which need to be evaluated comprehensively by all the countries of Asia, especially since all indications are that the next century will be an Asian Century.Printed Pages: 290. 104478

China's India War 1962: Looking Back to see the Future
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904725; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
A potential competition exists between India and China, and there is also no doubt that China started the war. Highlighting the mistakes made by India rather than empirically analysing the available data can be regarded as the primary causes for the confusion that exists today. Though complete details and evidence of the developments are available and documented, few of us have attempted to draw up a pragmatic and realist analysis.The consequences of that war have yet to die down entirely and are frequently raked up with issues on recent developments which are not widely dissimilar to those of 1962. China is a complex country. To understand this rapidly progressing nation is even more difficult. There are many perceptions on this country and many of them are formed on account of some international events and China’s growing assertiveness. It may be far-fetched to expect for a paradigm change in stance and motive which could give China an uncertain negotiating position. This edited volume provides the reader an excellent blend of the historical run-up to the aberration, the military developments and consequences. It is also provides useful material to understand the geographical boundary issues between India and China and developing Chinese strategies both on the political and military front.Printed Pages: 332. 104305

Defence from the Skies: 80 Years of the Indian Air Force (Second Edtion)
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904534; Second Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian Air Force now completes 80 years since it was formed as an independent component of India’s armed forces. Time and again, the air force has performed magnificently even against severe odds, and built up a professional reputation that is the envy of leading air forces of the word. This volume, as the Second Edition of the earlier volume published in 2007 has been extensively revised and updated. Air Forces are unique in the sense that they are the only national military institution exclusively devoted to military operations in the aerospace continuum. The Indian Air Force is no different. But their dominant role in modern warfare, the high costs of aerospace power, and a host of other factors demand closer attention to their role in modern defence and the protection of national interests. Air Forces don’t win wars by themselves; and no one in the Indian Air Force has ever claimed it. But no war can be won without them. We learnt that seminal lesson the hard way when we did not use the potent force of the IAF’s combat fleet in the Sino-Indian War of 1962. It is from this perspective that this study — or rather an interpretative essay reflecting on the significant issues and events of the past 80 years — approaches the challenges the Indian Air Force faces in the coming decades. IAF combat force levels have slumped while its commitments are rapidly growing in consonance with our expanding economic and political interests well beyond our territorial boundaries.Printed Pages: 430. 104298

Essays on China
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381904237; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The People’s Republic of China is not only a large country, spanning from the Pacific Ocean in the East to cover most of the Asian landmass till Central Asia in the West. The geographical spread is not the only challenge that China poses; understanding China poses a far bigger challenge. And limited transparency makes it that much more difficult. It has generally been accepted across the world that global power is shifting from West to East essentially due to the rise of China and India. Hence, there is a fundamental need for Indian scholars to study different aspects of China and its policies. Other parameters point toward the 21st century being much more of an Asian century. But history also tells us that Asia is the area where the longest wars have been experienced; where nine nuclear weapons states interact with each other; and where the challenges of human development are most acute. It is against this background that we have undertaken this venture to put together a collection of essays on China on various issues and from different perspectives. We hope that this approach would help the reader to choose the area he or she wants to look at more closely and grasp the essence of China and its future policies, especially in relation to India. I am grateful to the contributors for their Herculean efforts; but the errors and shortcomings are mine and I apologise for them. We are confident that you will enjoy reading this book.Printed Pages: 312. 104340

India's Defence Spending: Assessing Future Needs (Second Edition)
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8187966076 / 9788187966074; Second Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India’s defence spending experienced a marked decline since the late 1980s.From 3.6% of the GDP in 1987, defence spending came down to 2.1%, which was the lowest figure in nearly four decades. Modernisation, training and preparedness suffered heavily as a consequence since other segments of the expenditure remained pre-committed. Decline in defence capability was a major factor encouraging Pakistan to launch Kargil War in 1999.Printed Pages: 276. 104474

India-Russia Relations
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381904053; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
There is an apparent global power shift from the West to the East, essentially due to the rise of India and China and, as a consequence, the US has called for greater presence in the East in the midst of a major economic crisis and huge defence cuts. Many, after the Cold War, considered the international order to be unipolar; however, the rise of India and China, with Russia, Japan and South Korea assuming significant roles, appears to indicate a shift to a polycentric global order. Hence, the Indo-Russia dialogue assumes critical importance in the 21st century as a result of new evolving power centres and the relative decline of some older ones. The proceedings of the seminar highlight the requirement of a new relationship based on the Indo-Russia framework rather than on the earlier Indo-Soviet model in the midst of the changing regional strategic landscape. The book also draws attention to the shift in the US policy in East Asia. The economic and military rise of China and India; the lacklustre economic performance of Japan; the emergence of India as a nuclear weapon power; and the relative decline of US credibility as a security provider have altered the strategic landscape of the region. China’s assertiveness and North Korea’s emergence as a nuclear power are challenging the US presence in the region and, therefore, forcing the US defence policy to ‘Look East’. This book brings out an exciting analysis of future Indo-Russia relations based on defence, civil nuclear energy, space and science and technology.Printed Pages: 120. 104345

Indian Air Force: The Case For Indigenisation
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904497; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Just think: the last combat aircraft designed by the 74-year old HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd) with its expansive infrastructure was in the 1950s - and it was an excellent aircraft. Thirty years later an ad-hoc, interim institution called ADA (Aeronautics Development Agency) was set to design the LCA (Light Combat Aircraft) under the DRDO management. Thirty years later the aircraft has yet to enter service although the Indian Air Force has ordered 40 aircraft knowing they do not meet the qualitative requirements set in the early 1980s, leave alone the 21st century! Even the primary trainer for rookie pilots has just begun to be imported. Obviously something is wrong for a long time; and obviously it is a systemic problem.This volume sets out to historically examine and present a balanced understatement of the facts. Some of the leading experts in the profession of aerospace identify the problems. The reader is left to form his judgment and what appears an obvious solution. The Air Force is the most concerned stakeholder in the quality and quantity of military aircraft; but it seems to have been left on the sidelines in the process of to be criticised as being against indigenisation. We recognise that India is way behind the developed countries and China now, in design and development of military aviation. We dont have to go far to find the way ahead. Ninety-five percent of the Indian Navys warships and submarines are designed and manufactured in the country (tough many systems inside, like its missiles, may be acquired from the best in the world). The reason is starkly so simple that South Block itself does not notice it! Naval Head Quarters contain within its organisation under the leadership and the Chief of Naval Staff, the Directorate of Naval Design as well as the Controller of Warship Production besides the other supporting organisations like WESEE etc. Hence when the indigenous INS Delhi sailed out in the 1990s, the international community began to look at Indian Navy with new respect. Why cant similar system be established for the Army and the Air Force? Read the volume to ask your questions and mull over possible solutions.Printed Pages: 280. 104327

Indian Aircraft Industry
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502519; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Aviation came to India quite early, in fact a century ago, and an aircraft factory, Hindustan Aircraft Ltd., had been set up 70 years ago in Bangalore. But India, from its 25 percent share of global manufacturing in 1750, had been deindustrialised in the previous two centuries and its technological and economic capacity had been emasculated by the Raj. Hence, it had no industry, leave alone defence industry, to talk of at the time of independence. But by 1948, the first Indian design of a primary trainer, the HT-2, was started and soon, the licensed production of the first jet fighter, the Vampire, commenced at HAL.During the 15 years before the Sino-Indian War in 1962, HAL moved ahead rapidly, designing a number of light aircraft. It began the design of the jet trainer Kiran, and manufactured the famous Gnat fighter which acquired the reputation of “Sabre Killer” in the 1965 War with Pakistan. Above all, it started an ambitious project in 1956 to manufacture a multi-role combat aircraft, the HF-24 Marut, which turned out to be an outstanding design. Notwithstanding our inability to get an adequately powerful engine for it, three squadrons equipped with the aircraft served the country well in the 1971 War on the Western front.During the Nehru era, the aircraft industry rested on three strands of self-reliance: indigenous design and development, licensed manufacture, and outright import in some cases. Unfortunately, after the 1962 War, the need for expansion of the IAF led to enormous demands of modern aircraft of all types, and the country’s defence needs were mostly met by licensed production of hundreds of fighter and transport aircraft and helicopters. We seemed to have become complacent (or incapable of professional thinking). In the process, the self-reliance model of three strands shrank to just two strands, with indigenous design and development, which is the most crucial element in creating autonomy in aircraft and other industrial enterprises, suffering a serious setback amounting to neglect for more than three decades. This has been changing during the past decade and new opportunities are opening up with a sustained high economic growth on one side and opening up of new sources of technology and arms on the other. But major institutional and structural reforms would be required to take advantage of the new opportunities. This volume by the country’s leading defence expert, points out to the nature of these reforms after examining the Russian and Chinese experiences. This book is a must for military and industry professionals, students of defence, those interested in aviation and the general reader.Printed Pages: 312. 104390

Military Leadership for Tomorrow
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8187966580 / 9788187966586; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
A leader, military, political or in any other profession, is inevitably a lonely person, and yet a successful leader, especially in the military profession, must be a very sensitive person to be able to lead successfully through the motivation, dedication and loyalty of those he leads. In the military profession, of course, this acquires even greater salience since the profession, at one level, demands a willingness and readiness to make the supreme sacrifice, and, at another, involves victory or defeat of the country that nurtures its military power.According to an American saying, “There are three types of leaders: those who make things happen, those that watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened!” This is why the military needs leaders of the first kind, and who can not only manage and motivate people, but also ideas and concepts for which they must acquire knowledge on a broad basis. Modern military power is highly technology oriented and even dominated by it. Current trends indicate that this will increase in future. Contrary to conventional wisdom, this will increase the premium on the quality of the man dealing with the machine at all levels. In the air forces, this would matter even more since “so much will depend on so few.”We need strategists at all levels; and the chiefs of the armed forces of 2040 are already in active service. They would have to provide military professional advice to the political leadership at crucial times under enormous uncertainties where “actionable” intelligence would not be available, and their own knowledge and experience would have to guide them. To enable them to do so successfully, these officers would have to be given broad-based education and knowledge. Above all, successful military leadership would require very high standards of professional integrity as well as personal integrity – at all levels.This volume brings together eminent experts well versed in the theory and practice of leadership and the knowledge that needs to be available to them. The issues explored in this volume are equally applicable to other professions, especially in the corporate world.Printed Pages: 28. 104427

Role of Indian Air Force in 1971 War
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904503; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Indian Air Force which was initially created as an independent military force proved to be an independent and versatile component of Indias military power in 1971 War. This book provides insightful essays and material to critically review and revalidate some of the continuing concepts and approaches to the planning and execution of military operations. This edited version delves into the national interest protection and legitimate compulsions for India to go into war. The compilation also lays out the canvass for a comparison study with the one in 1965. The analyses on military strategy of Pakistan and avenues of shortcoming in joint planning bring out important lessons in force employment. The aggressive dimensions of offensive actions by all the three Services have been well documented.The 1971 War proved the heroism, steadfastness and courage of junior leadership that, incidentally, has also been the hallmark during Kargil in 1999. Despite frequent criticisms on jointness, instances of combined resoluteness and mutual trust during 1971 War contributed immensely to the victory. Valuable lessons can be inferred from instances where objectivity in political decisions brought about judicious outcomes through demonstrable use of military power.The book also provides a few analytical horizons on the background framework of Simla Agreement and certain events in the past that could have developed a different template for history. Air power may be difficult to understand but an evaluation of the purpose, cost and expected gains as evident from various instances of history including 1971 War would bring an end to many irreconcilable and inchoate debates. This book makes for a compelling read for those in quest of understanding the competence of air power and its dominant influences to shape victory.Printed Pages: 238. 104326

The ICON: Marshal of the Air Force, Arjan Singh, DFC (Second Edition)
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502694; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is the story of one man who has been the ICON of the Indian Air Force (IAF) for decades – but in reality it is also the history of a family called the IAF. Arjan Singh joined this family in his teens when the Second World War started, and rose to be the sole Marshal of the Indian Air Force, the highest military rank attainable which before him only two army chiefs, Carriappa and Sam Manekshaw, had achieved. At the ripe old age of 24, he commanded No. 1 Squadron, flying Hurricane fighters in defence of Imphal, in1944 beseiged by the Japanese, where the Supreme Commander SEAC, Lord Mountbatten, in an unprecedented step, personally awarded the DFC (Distinguished Flying Cross) to him on the battlefield itself for his leadership and performance in defeating the Japanese.Arjan Singh had a meteoric career and led the Indian Air Force to an unequivocal victory in Pakistan’s War in 1965. In spite of enormous difficulties, shortages, internal challenges and restraints, the IAF clearly dominated Pakistan Air Force (PAF), stopping their armour offensive on 1st September in its tracks while providing near 100 per cent of the required direct offensive air support to our army.This biography by India’s leading defence expert, unambiguously debunks the myths of Pakistani superiority, promoted by their propaganda and our own negligence of history and empirical evidence. And it does so on the basis of hard facts, a large number of them brought to light for the first time, and explains the political and operational restrictions that applied to the air operations. The IAF was shooting down three Pakistani fighters for the loss of one of their own besides providing full support to our Army. It was shooting down three Pakistani fighters for the loss of one of their own besides providing full support to our Army. It was not only the Gnats that became “Sabre Killers” but Hunters and Mysteres shot down a large number of Sabres and Starfighters in air combat, while Canberra bombers defied the PAF by providing daylight close air support to our troops.Printed Pages: 370. 104375

Winning India's Next War: The Role of Aerospace Power
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8187966742 / 9788187966746; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Within a century from its inception, air power (and now increasingly aerospace power) has acquired a dominant role in the foreign policy of nations in wars and use of force not necessarily leading to war. In spite of some enthusiasts claiming otherwise, aerospace power can-not win a war by itself; but it is also true that no modern war can be won without it. Wars that we are likely to be faced with would be limited in nature, whether they are sub-conventional (employing irregular strategies like terrorism, etc.), or conventional. Aerospace power would remain the core of credible nuclear deterrence for defence. Aerospace power would tilt the balance even more effectively in limited wars than it does in full-scale classical wars. It is in this context that the author has examined the role of aerospace power in winning our wars in the future.Printed Pages: 282. 104447
