Established in 1969, Manohar is a publishing house and a bookseller serving individuals and libraries. We export books by mail and have a bookstore at Ansari Road in Delhi.
Manohar initially sold only rare and out of print publications, but soon branched out into local sale/export of new books published in India, and then into publishing of scholarly works under its own imprint.
Krishnan Srinivasan’s exceptionally frank memoir of
his tenure as Foreign Secretary narrates his impressions of the personalities
he encouraged, and of the topics in foreign policy that arose in the early
1990s and which would remain on India’s agenda for the subsequent two decades.
The volume also offers an analysis of the origin, hey-day and decline of the
practice of non-alignment, along with penetrating short takes on contemporary
events from as far afield as in the United States of America in the West to
Japan in the East; and for the general reader, reflections on caste, charity
and competitiveness. The volume closes with a short story about the
reminiscences of a colourful retired diplomat.
Krishnan Srinivasan is a diplomat and scholar, who
served as Foreign Secretary and Commonwealth Deputy Secretary- General, and as
a Fellow at Cambridge, Leiden and Uppsala. He is an Azad Fellow at the
Institute of Asian Studies at Kolkata and an honorary professor at ASCI
Hyderabad. This is his fifth book on world politics.
