A look behind the scenes of some of India’s most critical foreign policy decisions by the country’s former foreign secretary and national security adviser. Every country must make choices about foreign policy and national security. Sometimes those choices turn out to have been correct, other times not. In this insider's account, Shivshankar Menon describes some of the most crucial decisions India has faced during his long career in government—and how key personalities often had to make choices based on incomplete information under the pressure of fast-moving events. Menon either participated directly in or was associated with all the major Indian foreign policy decisions he describes in Choices. These include the 2005–08 U.S.–India nuclear agreement; the first-ever boundary-related agreement between India and China; India's decision not to use overt force against Pakistan in response to the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai; the 2009 defeat of the Tamil rebellion in Sri Lanka; and India's disavowal of the first-use of nuclear weapons. Menon examines what these choices reveal about India's strategic culture and decisionmaking, its policies toward the use of force, its long-term goals and priorities, and its future behavior. Choices will be of interest to anyone searching for answers to questions about how one of the world's great, rising powers makes its decisions on the world stage, and the difficult choices that sometimes had to be made.

The chessboard of Sino-Indian relations, fraught with emotion, diplomatic strategy, military stand-offs and global ambitions, will perhaps be the most keenly watched during the 21st century; certain to send ripples across the world, influence markets and international policy. So where do the fault lines lie in this contest between the two Asian giants, poised on either side of the Himalayas? India and China, inheritors of two of the world’s most ancient civilisations have had aeons of neighborly bonds, cemented by Buddhism and the bridge building missions of Fa Hien, Huen Tsang and Kotnis. No strife was witnessed till the fateful autumn of 1962, when the two countries fought a short and bitter war on the desolate Himalayan heights. Ever since, mutual suspicion, sporadic face-offs and a spirit of competitive nationalism have bedeviled relations between them, even as unsettled borders possess the ability to trigger further conflict. In a cogent and comprehensive analysis, the author traces the origins of the discord to the flawed legacy of imperial Britain’s unilateral border delineation and the ebb and flow of Chinese activism in Tibet. The gripping narrative carries the reader from the post-1947 Panchsheel bonhomie to years of mutual distrust, aggravated, among other causes, by Chinese paranoia over Tibet, and Indian public opinion. India’s cataclysmic defeat in the 1962 war, which remains a young nation’s humiliation, is attributed to the ill-advised Forward Policy and failure of the politico-military leadership of the time. In this revised and updated edition, the author chronicles the events after the 1962 war and the changes in the relationship subsequent to the evolution of China into a economic and military superpower. The impact of China’s special relationship with Pakistan, their apprehensions about the Dalai Lama, the role of USA, and the recurring incidents at the border, including Doklam, are analysed lucidly as are the challenges faced by Indian military and diplomatic establishment in tackling the threat from across the Himalayas.

«Γυρίζοντας το φάκελο απ’ την άλλη μεριά, με χέρια που έτρεμαν, ο Χάρι είδε πως ήταν κλεισμένος με μια σφραγίδα από κόκκινο κερί, η οποία είχε ένα περίεργο έμβλημα: ένα λιοντάρι, έναν αετό, ένα σκαντζόχοιρο κι ένα φίδι, πλαισιωμένα από ένα κεφαλαίο Χ». Ο Χάρι Πότερ δεν ήξερε τίποτα για το Χόγκουαρτς όταν τα γράμματα άρχισαν να πέφτουν βροχή στο χαλάκι της εισόδου, στο σπίτι της οδού Πρίβετ 4. Η διεύθυνση είναι γραμμένη με πράσινο μελάνι επάνω σε κίτρινη περγαμηνή και είναι κλεισμένα με μια σφραγίδα από κόκκινο κερί. Η απαίσια θεία κι ο θείος του Χάρι του τα παίρνουν αμέσως. Τότε, στα ενδέκατα γενέθλια του Χάρι, εισβάλει ο Ρούμπεους Χάγκριντ ένας γίγαντας με γελαστά μάτια που έχει να του πει εκπληκτικά νέα: Ο Χάρι Πότερ είναι μάγος και η θέση του στη Σχολή για Μαγεία και Ξόρκια Χόγκουαρτς τον περιμένει. Μια απίστευτη περιπέτεια ξεκινά!
