Security Community in South Asia: India-Pakistan

Dr. Muhammad Shoaib Pervez of Lahore School of Economics, who has done his PhD in International Relations from Leiden University, Netherlands, has written a book titled Security Community in South Asia: India-Pakistan [published by Routledge (London), August 2012]. This book explains the India-Pakistan rivalry from a very different perspective.

The author's perspective is based on socio-cultural norms and a two level narrative (elite vs popular). It explains how the elites of two states have put hostage the aspirations of a billion plus people of these two states by denying them a chance to live peacefully. The book also highlights the presence of a unique normative structure found at the popular level, and looks at how the common people of both India and Pakistan share many socio-cultural norms. Based upon these norms he then conceptualizes a hypothetical security community between India-Pakistan. An interesting and valuable approach for analyzing these issues of security through the socio-cultural lens, this book is of interest to academics and scholars of South Asian politics, security studies and international relations.

This book is now available online at Amazon.
