This book is the first history of Low Intensity Conflict (LIC) in India since independence. It analyzes the roots of conflict in a range of contexts. In the author's view, India's struggle for independence itself rates as the 20th century's most significant LIC. Subsequent conflicts have made India possibly the world's most complex and varied theatre of LICs.

Lt Col Vivek Chadha is presently at Army Headquarters, New Delhi.
