"It was a war which should never have taken place. The reasons for this view will be found in the book. In it I am concerned with the causes-the competing interests of India and China which took the form of sharp differences over the border. They were most acute in the western and eastern extremities of the Himalayas, separated by over a thousand miles. THe border dispute was the immediate cause of the war; it is therefore necessary to understand how it arose." from the preface of the book.
