Recently, amid current India-China tensions, the fourth volume of India-Tibet Relations 1947-1962 was completed by Claude Arpi. After India’s Independence, China was discerned to be a partner by Nehru in creating a new-post colonial world. This mistake and his aspirations for a global role neglected India’s security and national priorities at huge cost. This issue gives a brief picture of the remorseless Tibetan marginalization under Chinese expansionist claims, abetted by PM Nehru. The release of this book amid prevailing India-China tensions could be an enduring lesson for the present and future governments to come.
