Opis produktu:

The Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) is India’s premier intelligence agency. Like the CIA in the USA and MI-6 in the UK, it is responsible for external intelligence. However, unlike intelligence agencies in many democratic countries that are subjected to public and parliamentary scrutiny, the activities of RAW remain shrouded in mystery. Until now there have been few accounts of what it was like to actually be a member of the RAW, not least of all for 26 years. Raman, the author of this book, served in this organization for 26 years and reveals exactly what went on behind the shroud. The book traverses through India’s contemporary history- importantly the 71 war; insurgency in the Northeast, Punjab and Kashmir; the Emergency; the war in Afghanistan and the intelligence imperatives and dispensation under Indira Gandhi, Morarji Desai, Rajiv Gandhi, VP Singh, Chandra Shekhar and Narasimha Rao. Written with the purpose that a knowledge of the role played by R&AW in those events enables a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses, it painstakingly avoids over-statements, exaggerations and spins. Known for his candor, the author provides rare insights into the functioning of R&AW, and reveals a complex account of the benefits and failings of this particular intelligence agency. In India, retired intelligence officers have written books on general aspects of intelligence and security. However, there has been a reluctance to write on the functioning of India’s intelligence agency - until now.
