Garver on a Second Sino-Indian War

External News Details

In great measure, the 1962 war [between China and India] was a consequence of Mao's need to reassert his control over the party after the disaster of the Great Leap Forward and to score off the Soviet Union. In some measure it was also, according to John Garver, a China expert in The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, a misreading of India's intentions on Tibet and New Delhi's confrontational "forward policy." These factors are missing today. Source: India Today, October 14, 2012
