National Security: Imperatives and Challenges
National security, in theory and practice, is about governing a nation for the well-being of the people. It is a group subject and is not the domain of a single expert of a kind. It is teamwork under leadership of excellence. What is important is the consistency of purpose providing comfort to the people of a national and thereby the people of the world in their physical, mental and emotional domains as an ongoing process throughout their lives.
What people are saying - Write a review
The book is factually meticulous and based on research on hard-data. This book can form a basis for further in-depth study. It is an ideal resource for elaborate academic inquiry. The chapter on Ethnic security is what I appreciated most, especially with reference to their history in democratic countries like India and the USA.
Excellent book with absolutely new ideas and thoughts but seemingly published at very low key. A must read and re-read.
