Terrorism, Insurgencies and Counterinsurgency Operations
N. C. Asthana IPSAnjali Nirmal
It presents an exhaustive analysis of terrorism in Kashmir, the North-Eastern states and Punjab besides left-wing terrorism. We find a revealing expose of the machinations of the ISI and the threat of pan-Islamic fundamentalism. The authors show that ad hoc responses in the nature of fire-fighting do not lead us anywhere. That is why, in spite of having killed thousands of terrorism that deals and arrested several times more, we are still nowhere near controlling terrorism that defines a political, police or military solution. Here the authors develop a comprehensive strategy for counterinsurgency, followed by an enunciation of the crucial tactical concepts that will ensure victory in our war against terrorism. ..more

Nuclear Weapons and International Security
N.C. Asthana IPSAnjali Nirmal
Nuclear weapons are there to stay forever. Nations may keep on talking of disarmament, universal peace and development but still keep a fearsome inventory of nuclear weapons. The USA, even as its military power is unchallenged in the world, is still spending a whopping $ 1000 billion on the modernization of its nuclear weapons—other nations are bleeding themselves dry anyway. It is because no one can guarantee that nuclear weapons would never be used. Had that been the case, there was no point of keeping them in the first place! No one should believe that whatever that is too horrible to think of cannot happen. This means that in future wars, nuclear weapons can indeed be used and we must be prepared for it. It is therefore imperative that we must analyze the subject of nuclear weapons and international security comprehensively in all its dimensions. This is what this book does. The notions which you have derived from TV, films or popular articles are all wrong. This book, written by eminent scholars including a nuclear scientist, busts all the myths associated with the business of wars and nuclear weapons. In one cover, this book provides comprehensive and absolutely authentic information on the nuclear weapons and policies of North Korea, Israel, Iran, China, Pakistan, USA, Russia, England, France and India. Indians, of all the people in the world, cannot afford to be not interested in nuclear weapons because we are surrounded by two hostile neighbours who are both nuclear powers. Hence whether you are a lay man; a student of military science, defence & strategic studies; a media person; a policy-maker; or in the armed forces, you must read this book so that you understand the dangers that we are facing. ..more

ISIS and Taliban : The Inside Story
N.C. AsthanaIPSAnjali Nirmal
ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) and Taliban are almost daily in news. We must know everything about them because they are likely to expand their activities into India also. Already some 22 young, highly educated Indians have left the comforts of their homes to fight and get killed for the ISIS. Media provides only fragmented information, making people harbour all sorts of myths. This book tells you everything including: · What they are; what is their ideology; what is their objective; why are they opposed to the West; · What are they doing; what atrocities they are committing; how do they treat women; · What explains their appeal which makes people leave their homes and travel thousands of miles to fight for them; · What is Wahabism/Salafism; what is meant by jihad and the jihadists; what is radicalization and de-radicalization; what is the role of the madarsas with regard to terrorism; · How do they get their arms and armament; how do they get the funds they need and how the world can disrupt those sources; · How the Western world and the USA have made a mess of the Middle-East and the Syrian Civil War; · How the Taliban are making a comeback even after 16 years of relentless bombing by the Americans; what are the prospects of a Taliban victory; · And finally, can the world expect to get rid of the ISIS and Taliban or, are they here to stay? Whether you are a lay man, a student, a homemaker, a media person, a policy-maker, or a man in the armed forces, the comprehensive knowledge contained within the pages of this book will ensure that when the need arises, we may respond in a correct manner.  ..more

Awareness of Human Rights in Adolescents
Nivedita Paul
The objective of the book is to bring forth the awareness of human rights amongst the adolescents who are the future citizens of the Indian society. It is indeed the adolescents who will create and decide what is the actual value of these rights. With the awareness of their fundamental and human rights are the adolescents aware of their duties, too? This book is on to find out whether adolescents are really aware of their human rights and if they are aware how much they are adjusted in the society with regard to their culture and socio-economic status. It was accepted worldwide that promotion of human rights is the only way to world peace. So almost all countries framed laws to ensure and protect human rights of their citizens. Though next world war did not occur yet the target of peace could not be achieved within the territories of various countries. Worldwise terrorism has added fuel to this fire-destructive situation. This has proved that law or constitution alone can not protect the human rights of citizens. Now educationists have given a solution to this problem. They have suggested that human rights education might protect human rights of citizens all over the world. But this target can be achieved when human rights education becomes a compulsory part and parcel of B.Ed./M.Ed. and school curriculum. This book will be of special interest to non-governmental organisations, bureaucrats, sociologists and educationists, human rights activists and those general readers who wish to understand and be aware of wide ranging implications of Human Rights.  ..more
