      <Abstract>The May-June standoff in Ladakh between the Indian Army and the Chinese PLA surprised not only India, but the entire globe, as everyone__ampersandsign#39;s attention was focused on combating the Covid-19 outbreak. Why did China decide to become a military aggressor at this time? What are the residual disagreements between these Asian behemoths, who will soon be the world__ampersandsign#39;s top two economies? Is India__ampersandsign#39;s claim to Aksai Chin based solely on colonial India__ampersandsign#39;s security needs? Or did Indians have dominion over these territories in the past? What are the historical ties between these places and the Indian mainland? What is Ladakh__ampersandsign#39;s geostrategic significance? Did the Chinese Communist Party__ampersandsign#39;s internal strife lead to the breakdown of relations with India? Has India learned the lessons of 1962, and what role does it play militarily in Ladakh? Is India fundamentally misinterpreting China? Was the Wuhan Spirit and the Chennai Connect useful? Are there any other important aspects of India-China ties in which the latter may be at a disadvantage?&#13;
This book goes into great length on these and other similar issues. This compilation, compiled by Shakti Sinha and launched in the middle of the current political upheaval in India-China ties, comes at an appropriate time. The book is made up of a series of pieces that trace the history of India-China relations since the millennium. It explores the many myths that China has cloaked itself in, and seeks to answer specific concerns concerning the country__ampersandsign#39;s history and connections with India. In an age where information released in the media is often taken with a grain of salt, this book gives a complete history of India-China foreign affairs, separating fallacies from facts and establishing and analysing the origins of the two ancient nations__ampersandsign#39; connection.</Abstract>
