Synopsis: 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.

About the Author: Stephen P. Cohen is a senior fellow in The India Project, a part of the Foreign Policy program at Brookings, following a career as a professor of political science and history at the University of Illinois. In 2004, he was named by the World Affairs Councils of America as one of “America?s 500 Most Influential People? in the area of foreign policy.

Cohen is the author, co-author, or editor of over 14 books, mostly on South Asian security issues, including Shooting for a Century, The India-Pakistan Conundrum (Brookings Institution Press, 2013) and The Future of Pakistan (Brookings Institution Press, 2011). He has also written books on India, Pakistan, nuclear proliferation, disaster management, and the application of technology to the prevention or amelioration of terrorism.

In early 2008, Cohen was a visiting professor at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in Singapore, where he taught a course on the politics of manmade and natural disasters. He also taught in Japan at Keio University, and in India at Andhra University. He has consulted for numerous foundations and government agencies, and was a member of the policy planning staff at the Department of State from 1985 to 1987. He was a visiting scholar at the Ford Foundation in New Delhi from 1992 to 1993.
