Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Examines how confidence-building measures have been used, and could be more extensively, to defuse volatile relations among India, Pakistan, Kashmir, and China. Such elements as hot lines, exchanges of information on military equipment and force deployments, cooperative aerial inspections, and crisis prevention centers have been used successfully during the Cold War and in the Middle East and other troubled regions.
