'An impressive, masterly study with an epic sweep that straddles the complex landscape of contemporary India-China relations and that brings into sharp focus the intricate, multi-faceted nature of the subject. Joshi's investigative outlook, his deep knowledge of the issues involved and their strategic nature, together with his objectivity and clarity of assessment, combine to make for a work of outstanding scholarship.' -- Nirupama Rao, former Indian Foreign Secretary, and author of The Fractured Himalaya: India, Tibet, China, 1949-1962
'At last, an accessible, accurate and up-to-date account of the India-China border. Steeped in Joshi's deep knowledge and long experience, this timely and topical book places the India-China border within the larger context of relations between the two countries, and of Asian and global politics. Coming when India-China relations are poised at the crossroads and could go either way, this book is an essential read.' -- Shivshankar Menon, former National Security Adviser, Foreign Secretary and Ambassador to China, and author of Indian and Asian Geopolitics: The Past, Present
'In a field already crowded with several works on the India-China border issue, this finely crafted book stands out for its meticulous research, sharp analysis and outstanding insights. Joshi has skilfully used the prism of the border issue to explore the possible trajectory of India-China relations in a vastly altered geopolitical landscape, lending to the book's contemporary relevance.' -- Shyam Saran, former Indian Foreign Secretary, Prime Minister's Special Envoy on Nuclear Affairs and Climate Change and author of How India Sees the World: Kautilya to the 21st century
'The territorial dispute between China and India is one of the world's largest and most consequential. In clear, lucid and engaging prose, Joshi offers an accessible and definitive account of the dispute's complex history and how the stability created along the border in the early 1990s has steadily eroded. A terrific accomplishment and must-read for anyone interested in the past, present and future of India-China relations.' -- M. Taylor Fravel, Arthur and Ruth Sloan Professor of Political Science, and Director, Security Studies Program, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
'Having covered India's unsuccessful struggle to resolve the boundary dispute with China over the last three decades and more--as a reporter, editor, analyst and scholar--Joshi offers deep insights into the tragic tale of unaligned interests and unrealisable expectations of each other in Delhi and Beijing.' -- C. Raja Mohan, Visiting Research Professor, Institute of South Asian Studies, National University of Singapore
