“It is a comprehensive work, which has dealt with various issues related to Maritime Strategy and National Security.” •- U.S.I. Journal
This eclectic panorama of articles and speeches rendered in India and abroad, by one of the most respected and articulate Chiefs that the Indian Navy has had, provides unique and incisive insights on a wide range of subjects. Gleaned from his considerable repertoire, this selection touches on issues such as Maritime Power, Defence Finance and Planning, Shipbuilding, Defence R&D, Higher Defence Management, Jointmanship, and others. All these subjects are of immense contemporary significance and concern. They offer as much to the inquisitive uninitiated as to Servicemen and hard-nosed defence analysts eager for a first- hand version of matters relating to national security.
"This multi-dimensional book covers virtually every aspect of India’s security, from public-private partnerships for indigenous manufacturing of its military needs, to dilatory and damaging acquisition processes, to military’s diverse roles in the nation’s life, to the comparative relevance of doctrines and strategies, etc. Our security establishment should pay special attention to what this wise and thoughtful military leader has to say about the necessity of a Chief of Defence Staff to ensure jointness in our military’s planning, decision-making, operations in war and in tendering single-pointed advice to government in matters pertaining to the country’s defence."
- Maharajakrishna Rasgotra, Former Foreign Secretary
