What stops India and Pakistan from being friends? In this provocative, deeply analysed book, full of riveting revelations and anecdotes, Husain Haqqani, adviser to four Pakistani prime ministers, looks at the key pressure points in the relationship.
In this well-written and well-documented book, Haqqani argues that Pakistani nationalism has evolved into anti-Indianism – something that Indians can weaken by following their former PM Vajpayee’s lead, when he unequivocally accepted the idea of Pakistan, recorded at the Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore in 1998.
