India, China, the United States, Tibet, and the Origins of the 1962 War

Title:India, China, the United States, Tibet, and the Origins of the 1962 War
Author:Garver John
Publication:India Review / Frank Cass Publishers
Enumeration:January 2004, vol. 3, no. 2, pp. 171-182
Abstract:This article reviews several recent books, including the recently declassified Indian official history of the 1962 war, and analyzes the possible role of India complicity with US covert operations in Tibet as a factor in the origin of the 1962 Sino-Indian war. The Indian official history of the 1962 war offers little useful information in this regard, while other scholarly studies are reckless in their assertions of Indian complicity. We still remain in the dark about what Nehru knew and when he knew it about CIA activities in Tibet. The best guess seems to be that Nehru had a broad, general knowledge of US covert activities, recognized as useful for pressing China to compromise with India over Tibet, but refused to associate India in any way with US activities.
