Irregular warfare : the Maoist challenge to India's internal security by Prakash Singh( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
The author's monograph on the Maoist Movement in India benefits from his unique perspective as a distinguished police officer in some of the country's most turbulent regions. He provides a detailed history of insurgency in India, including the history of uprisings starting from the Telengana insurrection of the mid-to-late 1940s to the Communist movement, sponsored by Mao Zedong's China. Mr. Singh traces the transition of the peasant-led Naxalite movement, with its roots in a single village in West Bengal, to the Communist Party of India (Maoist) Movement, which has spread to some 20 of India's 28 states. India's prime minister has declared more than once that the Maoist challenge is the biggest threat to the internal security of the country. How India accommodates its tribal minorities and reaches an accommodation with insurgents is a critical element for long-term regional stability
Disaster response in India by Prakash Singh( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
India is prone to natural and man-made disasters. The number has been increasing every year because of the mixture of various factors such as adverse weather, population growth, urbanization, and industrialization. How the Republic of India organizes for managing significant natural and man-made disasters, its capacity for effective response, and its ability to achieve unity of effort among governmental and non-governmental organizations are the elements of analysis here. This is of interest because India is an emerging world power; it is currently the second largest country in the world in population, and by 2050 it will have surpassed China as the largest. The number of Indians affected by disaster events shows a steady upward trend. Disasters have been taking a heavy toll of human and animal lives. Floods have proven to be the most devastating type of natural disaster in India, causing the maximum number of deaths and damage to property (cyclones have taken a heavy toll of lives and caused widespread devastation). At the same time, droughts affect a large segment of population, resulting in loss of employment and migration to other regions. Earthquakes have caused a comparatively lower amount of damage, but landslides are likely to increase in frequency in the coming years because of deforestation and over development on hillsides. Conurbation and industrialization have combined to create a dangerous synergy that now presents a significant hazard to India's people. In responding to these kinds of hazards, India's disaster management officials and professional humanitarians conduct disaster planning and response generally within a paradigm of three phases: Pre-disaster; Emergency (or Disaster Impact); Post Disaster (or Recovery). There is a strong emphasis in government policy and planning to encourage mitigation, i.e., actions taken prior to the occurrence of a disaster, including preparedness and long-term risk reduction measures

India's Northeast: The Frontier in Ferment ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Prakash Singh's monograph on the threat that insurgencies in northeast India present to the national government provides an excellent insight into a significant security challenge to the Indian state. The troubles in the eight northeastern states highlighted in this work are frequently overlooked in the West when people assess India's security concerns, which often focus on Pakistan and China. This work clearly elevates the fractious northeastern region as a region of concern and challenge for the central government. Upon the modern Indian state's independence from the British Empire in 1947, the members of the tribes and ethnic groups in the northeast clamored for various degrees of autonomy. The underlying factors behind these issues and desires are the differences between the region's citizens and the majority of the Indian populace. The northeast's citizens differ in ethnicity, religion, and culture from "mainstream" India and for some of them, independence just transferred "colonial" rule from the British to the Indians. From the central government's perspective, it is paramount to maintain control of this geo-strategic region that borders upon the People's Republic of China and, until 1971, its archrival Pakistan. However, India's perspective on needing to maintain control of all its territory cannot separate the northeast's call for independence or autonomy from other areas, most notably the Jammu and Kashmir region. If India were to relent and grant independence to any of the northeastern states, it could open the floodgates for a deluge of forces that challenge the central government. The government of India was fashioned and envisions itself as a secular, parliamentary, democratic state. How India accommodates minorities and can reach accommodation with insurgents is a critical element for long-term regional stability and is of critical concern to the United States and the international community

Executive Report: JSOU (Joint Special Operations University) Second Annual Symposium. Irregular Warfare: Strategic Utility of SOF ( file )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The Joint Special Operations University (JSOU) Strategic Studies Department held its second annual academic symposium on "Irregular Warfare: The Strategic Utility of Special Operations Forces (SOF)" in May 2007. The event was designed to present and discuss issues relevant to the special operations community with perspectives from experts on the Irregular Warfare (IW) theme. The symposium was framed by three keynote speakers, addressing the validity of IW as a model, experiences in the interagency process, and perspectives on SOF in the global security environment out to 2015. Three panels provided the substance and framework for the discussions and some thoughts for a way ahead. The panels were followed by successful "breakout" groups for more detailed discussion and input. In addition, two eminent authors offered perspectives on IW and other relevant topics during less formal lunchtime discussions. This report summarizes the high points of the keynote addresses, panel discussions, and luncheon speakers. JSOU president, Brigadier General Steven Hashem, opened the symposium with the USSOCOM perspective. He believes that IW is extremely relevant to USSOCOM, DoD, and the entire U.S. Government. Brigadier General Hashem briefly discussed the Quadrennial Defense Review's point that "In the post-September 11 world, irregular warfare has emerged as the dominant form of warfare confronting the United States, its allies, and its partners." With the decreased likelihood in the near to mid-term of conducting major conventional combat operations, the challenge is for the United States to develop capabilities that address the more nebulous aspects of winning a long-term, irregular war. This goal will require an indirect approach with protracted operations conducted on a global scale and focused on the will or support of the people
