PSCI257 - INT'L REL OF SOUTH ASIA

One of the great accidents of history is the Partition of the subcontinent into the two states of India and Pakistan, and the onset of the cold war as a global struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union. Indo-Pakistan wars over Kashmir, the dismantling of Pakistan by India and the creation of Bangladesh, Pakistan's support for Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups, and the acquisition by both countries of nuclear arsenals has marked the region as potentially the most dangerous area in the world. This course analyzes the changing security environment from 1947 until the present inlcuding the involvement of the United states, Soviet Union/Russia and China, and assesses the prospects for averting chaos in greater South Asia.
