Self-deception: India's China policies: origins, premises, lessons - Expanded ed. - India HarperCollins 2013 - 398 p.

"First published in India in 2008 as Are we deceiving ourselves again? by ASA Publications"--Title page verso.

A must-read for our times. A must for strengthening the country. On what assumptions was Pandit Nehru confident that China would not invade India in 1962? Why and on what basis did he scotch all warnings in Tibet and our entire border? What did he do when those assumptions proved wrong? What eventually led to the debacle of 1962? Are the same delusions and mistakes not being repeated now? Why will the consequences be any different? This is a devastating analysis and warning on India's policy and approach regarding China, based on Nehru's notes to his officers, his correspondence, including letters to chief ministers and his speeches in and out of Parliament.
