Since independence in 1947 of India and Pakistan, Kashmir has remained a subject of issue between India and Pakistan. They have fought three wars so far on the dispute and continue to be a source of irritant in their relations. It is also a flash point between the two nuclear powers of South Asia. The relations between Pakistan and India are easy to describe but difficult to explain. The two states of South Asia share historic, cultural, geographic and economic links but their relationship has been filled with hostility and doubt. This is a politico-religious conflict reflecting elements of secession, self rule and greater economic control. Its effects are not only across the border but also global, with its potential to lead to war between two nuclear weapon states. This book is a must read for anyone who wishes to learn about India Pakistan relation in context to Kashmir.
