Where Borders Bleed: An Insider's Account of Indo-Pak Relations

 
Rajiv Dogra (Author)
Synopsis

Where Borders Bleed is a keenly observed and anecdotal account of a factious landscape that has long engaged global attention: the Indo-Pak region. Covering almost seventy years of conflict, it chronicles the events leading up to Partition, reflects on the consequent strife, and provides a fresh, discursive perspective on the figures who have shaped the story of this land-from Lord Louis Mountbatten and Muhammad Ali Jinnah to Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh.

Covering historical, diplomatic and military perspectives, Where Borders Bleedis intrepid, engaging with a range of contentious issues that have shaped Indo-Pak relations-water sharing, Kashmir and Article 370. Equally, it is speculative. It asks: would terror have affected the world the way it has, if ‘PakIndia’ had been a benign single entity? What if India and Pakistan were to reunite, much like East and West Germany? As the now-largest nation in the world, would the mammoth PakIndia radically change the globe’s geo-political framework?

These questions-combined with the author’s own diplomatic access to rare archival material and key leaders across borders-make this a one-of-a-kind book on the story of India and Pakistan.
