Diplomatic Divide
Diplomatic Divide is the first volume of a publishing initiative titled Cross Border Talks, which attempts to provide a new forum to debate the issues that divide India and Pakistan. Providing an overview of bilateral relations by two senior retired diplomats who have served as ambassadors to each other's countries, the canvas the book paints is vast, stretching from the early 1980s to the present day. It covers the end of the Cold War, the liberalization of world trade, the growth of fundamentalism and a revolution in communications. The two accounts provide firsthand impressions of prime movers - Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, General Zia ul Haq, Benazir Bhutto, Nawaz Sharif and General Musharraf - as well as descriptions of significant episodes. These include hijacks by Kashmiri separatists, India's Punjab crisis, 'Operation Brass Tacks', Vajpayee's bus Yatra to Lahore, the Kargil confrontation and the Agra Summit. Thoughtful and insightful, Diplomatic Divide attempts to bridge the divide.
