Low intensity conflicts (or LICs) are motivated and sustained by a strong ideology--be it economic, political, ethnic or psychological. Through a sustained process of attrition, these often protracted struggles are capable of bringing the state to its knees, besides draining the exchequer and resulting in the loss of many lives. This important book is the first comprehensive account of LICs in India from 1947 to the present. The conflicts covered in detail are:. - Militancy in both Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir. - The complex problems in the North-East. - The agitation for Gorkhaland and Naxalit
