by Kumar, Satish (Ed.)
About This Book
This book is an independent project co-sponsored by India's National Security Council Secretariat and Confederation of Indian Industry. This is the third volume in the series, which was started in September 2000.
The present volume, apart from reviewing global security trends and the external and internal security environment of India, undertakes an in-depth examination of the challenges to India's military modernisation, economic security, and problems of self-reliance in defence technologies. In addition, it focuses on some non-traditional security issues like health hazards, urbanisation, and climate change and their security implications for India. A highlight of this volume is the national security index, which ranks countries on the basis of their defence capability, GDP, HDI, R&D, and population. Other features are a chronology of major events, select documents and basic statistics.
