KristofSumit Ganguly, author of the aptly titled Unending Conflict, an excellent new book on India-Pakistan relations and the three wars between them since independence.
— New York Times
— Sanjay Joshi
Conflict Unending is a welcome successor to much-worn copies of Sources of Conflict on library shelves. There is no better concise presentation for those seeking a grounding in this sadly still current subject.
This outstanding examination of the India-Pakistan conflict is indispensable reading for the scholar and policymaker. Sumit Ganguly offers a guide to its deeper origins and its dangerous manifestations with clarity and rigor. Dr. Ganguly has explored the reasons for India-Pakistan discord; his book is a major contribution to our understanding of what has emerged as one of the world's major trouble spots
In his brilliant new book, [Ganguly] provides a sophisticated and lucid explanation of why India and Pakistan have suffered such chronically bad relations. Conflict Unending sets the industry standard... and it cements Ganguly's reputation as one of the world's leading experts on subcontinental political affairs.

Into this vague understanding [of the India-Pakistan conflict] strides the refreshingly direct Conflict Unending: India-Pakistan Tensions since 1947, a book that manages to explicate the origins and evolution of South Asian political and military strife in a manner that is both straightforward and nuanced...making Conflict Unending's clear account of the core motivations at work both timely and significant.
Ganguly's comprehensive assessment of Indo-Pakistan tension should be required background reading for policy-makers, journalists and others seeking to understand the causes and history of conflict between these two sparring siblings.
A straightforward, well-written account... Brevity and lucidity are the strong points of this... easy read.
