India : emerging power by Stephen P Cohen( )

27 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and Japanese and held by 3,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first book to offer an assessment of India's strategic and political power since it became a declared nuclear weapons state in 1998 and fought its 1999 war with Pakistan. Stephen Cohen makes the case that India has become, with China and Japan, one of the three most important states in Asia."--Jacket
The idea of Pakistan by Stephen P Cohen( )

32 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and Urdu and held by 2,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years Pakistan has emerged as a strategic player on the world stage - both as a potential rogue state armed with nuclear weapons and as an American ally in the war against terrorism. But our understanding of this country is superficial." "To probe beyond the headlines, Stephen Cohen, author of the prize-winning India: Emerging Power, offers a panoramic portrait of this complex country - from its origins as a homeland for Indian Muslims to a military-dominated state that has experienced uneven economic growth, political chaos, sectarian violence, and several nuclear crises with its much larger neighbor, India."--Jacket
Arming without aiming : India's military modernization by Stephen P Cohen( )

21 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 2,341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"India, a leading importer of advance conventional weaponry, has not planned strategically for its military needs, although the haphazard approach, due to competing elements within the military and a restraint policy in place since the Nehru era, may be the right one in seeking accommodation with others in the region"--Provided by publisher
Shooting for a century : the India-Pakistan conundrum by Stephen P Cohen( )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examines the antagonistic relationship between India and Pakistan and the territorial and identity issues that have divided them for sixty-five years, and possibly the next thirty-five, and offers ways the tension between the two might be ameliorated if not solved, including a more active role for the United States"--Provided by publisher
Four crises and a peace process : American engagement in South Asia by P. R Chari( )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Explains the underlying causes of four contained conflicts on the subcontinent, their consequences, the lessons learned, and the American role in each. Considers these as cases of attempted conflict resolution, as instances of limited war by nuclear-armed nations, and as examples of intervention and engagement by the U.S. and China"--Provided by publisher
The future of Pakistan by Stephen P Cohen( )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With each passing day, Pakistan becomes an even more crucial player in world affairs. Home of the world's second-largest Muslim population, epicenter of the global jihad, location of perhaps the planet's most dangerous borderlands, and armed with nuclear weapons, this South Asian nation will go a long way toward determining what the world looks like ten years from now. The Future of Pakistan presents and evaluates several scenarios for how the country will develop, evolve, and act in the near future, as well as the geopolitical implications of each. Led by renowned South Asia expert Stephen P
Perception, politics, and security in South Asia : the compound crisis of 1990 by P. R Chari( )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a detailed examination of the compound crisis between India and Pakistan that brought the region to the brink of a nuclear war in 1990. Placing the crisis in the context of concurrent international events such as the fall of the Soviet Union, the authors draw out the lesson for present-day South Asian affairs. The book also makes a significant contribution to the debates on the role of nuclear weapons, confidence and security building strategies and the place of ethnicity in contemporary international relations
The South Asia papers : a critical anthology of writings by Stephen P Cohen( )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stephen Philip Cohen, the scholar who virtually created the field of South Asian security studies, has curated a unique collection of the most interesting and important articles, chapters, and speeches from his fifty-year career. Cohen, often described as the "dean" of U.S. South Asian studies, is a dominant figure in the fields of military history, military sociology, and South Asia's strategic emergence. This exceptional collection includes material that have never appeared in book form, including Cohen's original essays on the region's military history, the transition from British rule to independence, the role of the armed forces in India and Pakistan, the pathologies of India-Pakistan relations, South Asia's growing nuclear arsenal, and America's fitful (and forgetful) regional policy. These original writings show how Cohen developed a still-relevant theory of regional conflict, and how his views evolved over the years-tracking the development of South Asian security studies"--

Beyond America's grasp : a century of failed diplomacy in the Middle East by Stephen P Cohen( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Middle East expert Stephen P. Cohen traces U.S. policy in the region back to the breakup of the Ottoman Empire, when the Great Powers failed to take crucial steps. He sees in that early failure a pattern shaping the conflicts since then--and America's role in them. A century ago, there emerged two dominant views on the uses of America's newfound power. Woodrow Wilson urged America to promote national freedom and self-determination--in contrast to his predecessor Theodore Roosevelt, who had advocated a vigorous foreign policy based on national self-interest. Cohen argues that this running conflict has hobbled American dealings in the Middle East ever since, showing how different countries have struggled to define themselves in the face of America's stated idealism and its actual realpolitik. This conflict came to a head in the clumsy Middle East policy of George W. Bush--but Cohen suggests ways in a greater awareness of our history might enable our present leaders to act more sensibly.--From publisher description

"The Pakistan Army is the first comprehensive study of one of the Third World's most important armies. In this book, Professor Cohen draws upon his extensive earlier work on the military history of the subcontinent, recent visits to major Pakistan military schools, training centers, units in the field, and lengthy interviews with dozens of Pakistani army officers, both active and retired. Cohen examines and analyzes the social origins of the officer corps (the 'brains' of the army), the army's role in domestic politics, Pakistan's nuclear intentions, Islamization of the military, Pakistan's sensitive geopolitical position, its relation with the United States, and the possibility of a strategic rapprochement with India."--Jacket
