" Sashanka S.Banerjee's " A Long Journey Together " is a diplomatic treatise on relations between and beyond India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Retired Indian diplomat and scholar Banerjee explores the intricacies of the political relationship that is fraught with tension between Pakistan, created as a specifically Muslim country and India, a large and secular parliamentary democracy. Yet India received far less support from the US than Pakistan, a hotbed of militant Islamic fundamentalists. The US provided arms to Pakistan in exchange for a close ally in the region - an allegiance which became more important recently given the country's proximity to Afghanistan. The author presents a veritable landslide of information with a relatively even hand, extensive knowledge and experience. A legitimate work of political scholarship, this book will prove most useful to students of the region. An illuminating, invaluable work " Extract from a Book Review by Kirkus Discoveries.

In his comprehensive and palatable text, Banerjee pointedly explores the fact that India, which is a large and secular parliamentary democracy, receives far less support from the United States than Pakistan, a practical theocracy and a hotbed for militant Islamic fundamentalists.
