Book's And Articles
Maroof Raza’s publications reflect his academic expertise on the issues of military security in South Asia, and what are the intractable issues that confront the decision makers in India. While much of it is about India and Pakistan, like the co-authored recent best-selling book on “Kashmir’s untold story: Declassified” and his earlier compilation on “Confronting Terrorism”, his forthcoming book will be on Sino-Indian territorial disputes.
Kashmir's Untold Story: Declassified
Alexander an Christ in Kashmir Over 200 years later, in 326 BC, Alexander the Great, after conquering the Achaemenid Empire, turned his attention to India, which he believed was the end of the world. North- western India already formed the eastern part of the Achaemenid Empire, at this time.' He divided his invading army into two contingents: one entered the plains of India through the Khyber Pass and the other, led by him, crossed into India via the Hindu Kush mountain ranges, which the Greeks called Caucasus Indicus.
War and No Peace
Maroof Raza’s Contested Lands examines one of the most dramatic but unfortunate politico-military confrontations between two Asian neighbours in recent times. Although the book cannot be termed to be the work of an academic historian, it is both magisterial and one that permits ease of understanding.
Historically tracing the genesis of the conflict in a manner that reveals the dedication, foresight and rigour with which Raza has come to be identified with strategic thought in contemporary India, Contested lands attempts to reveal the reasons for the dissonances that have come to characterise the India-China boundary dispute. The manner in which the author has ably accessed secondary sources and arrayed them with his own frontline experience as a journalist-observer is motivating and is a refreshing addition to serious documentation and analyses of one of modern India’s foremost national security challenges.
