National Security in Perspective

S.T. Das (Author)
Synopsis The power of a nation is conditioned by (i) what that nation is in relation to people and national consciousness, (ii) what it has in land and material resources. Under material resources are classified all those material things needed for maintaining a peace time economy and for waging war. To direct military planning, to participate actively in a war or even to understand military strategy and tactics, one must know the effects of geographical forces on military operations. A war cannot be planned or waged without intimate knowledge of climate, weather, topography and ground cover; The width, depth and navigability of rivers; the size and shape of oceans and adjoining seas; the existence of life lines; the shape , area and relative locations of the continents, countries and island, distribution of arable land, minerals, natural resources and manufacturing centers. The book is designed to acquaint readers with the major regional facts and principles which contribute to a nation’s development, power and policies, and upon which many aspects of strategy and security are based. This should help one to gain a better insight into India’s position in world affairs and a sounder basis for thought about the course that Indian must chart in order to maintain that position.
