Underdogs End Empires: A Memoir

By I.P. Khosla

The voice of the underdog is now hardly ever heard in international relations discussions. There was a time in the 1960s and 1970s when it was. This book is a memoir about one way in which many of these things were thought and written about in the 1960s and 1970s. It is a useful reminder that there was a time when the real voice of the underdog was heard, not just the ventriloquial major powers and their multi-hued mimes; that we need to beware the relentless homogenization of a subject that takes up so much time and space in today's written and visual media and in the thinking of our leaders and foreign offices.

I.P. Khosla is currently Member-Secretary of the Indian Council for South Asian Cooperation and Editor-in-Chief of South Asian Survey, the biannual journal of the Council.
