The Challenge of Confidence-Building in South Asia

Moonis Ahmar (Editor)
Synopsis There are many reasons to be dispirited about the absence of proper confidence-building measures in South Asia. The book provides reasons for hope. A rising generation of teachers, strategic analysts, and researchers is applying their considerable talents to bridging the gap between the theory and practice of confidence-building. They are seeking to apply and adapt the literature of CBMs developed in the West indigenizing this body of work for the unique circumstances of South Asia. As this book testifies, there is a growing readiness to propose substantive ideas to break the cycle of negativity and violence that afflicts the region. There is little to be gained by slamming the existing record of negotiating and implementing CBMs in the region, and the contributors of this important volume restrain from doing so. CBMs cannot possibly be panaceas. They are a means to an end, and that end cannot be reached if political and military leaders do not wish to go there. The book is a most timely and welcome addition to the growing body of literature on CBMs in South Asia.
