Maritime Security for India

New Challenges and Responses

By K. R. Singh

India, part of a land-locked sub-continent, has no option but to emphasize its maritime perspective if it is to attain its destined role in the emerging regional and global order. Despite its inherited continental mindset, India has, over the decades, taken slow but steady steps in the field of maritime development. India has also learned the hard lesson that a nation which neglects its maritime defense can even lose its sovereignty. The post-Cold War environment has offered India multiple options to strengthen its maritime security through regional and international cooperation. This has assumed strategic significance in view of the new threat posed by maritime terrorism. This book evaluates India's maritime defense capability in the years to come. It analyzes the challenges that are likely to be posed, as well as the options that are available to neutralize them.
