India embarked upon the liberalisation path in1991 by dismantling the Licence, Quota, Permit Raj. A decade later, the defence sector allowed100 percent private sector participation with 26percent Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).

Pakistan's Millitary and Its Strategy

Publisher: New Delhi, India, KW Publishers: 2009

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 104435

ISBN: 818796684X

Condition: New


This book is an attempt to fill a critical void in our knowledge in understanding Pakistan’s military which on one side began to dominate the power structure of the country and at another sought a unique strategy to apply force for ideological and political goals. Most of the scholarship has focused on the former; and literature on the latter aspect is scant. This is understandable since few countries clearly spell out their military strategy. But as the victim of Pakistan’s military strategy in its myriad dimensions of building it and using it for six decades it is incumbent for us to und... View more info
