    From the Managing Editor

    We have been receiving encouraging feedback from some of the esteemed readers of the Journal of Defence Studies (JDS) about the quality of its content and the subjects covered. However, we are also aware that we have quit a distance to travel. With that aim, we are now being more selective in accepting the articles for publication in JDS. The present issue carries four articles and four book reviews.

    From the Managing Editor

    It is our constant endeavour to improve the quality and range of articles for the discerning readers of the Journal of Defence Studies. Your feedback and constructive criticism will spur us on to make even greater effort in future. We are also trying to reach out to a larger number of authors with new ideas to convey.

    From the Managing Editor

    From time to time, the Journal of Defence Studies has published articles on specific themes. In keeping with this tradition, the current issue dwells at length on the vital aspect of ‘Ethics and Morals in the Indian Armed Forces’. This subject has always held relevance for militaries the world over. However, with increasing information flows and awareness amongst the citizenry about their right to information vis-á-vis the state’s institutions and bureaucracy, the practice of morals and ethics in the armed forces is coming under closer scrutiny.

    From the Managing Editor

    Over the past few years, the Journal of Defence Studies (JDS) has alternately covered specific themes and articles of interest on varied subjects. The previous issue—October 2012—of JDS was devoted to 1962 India-China War, on the occasion of the 50th year of the event. This issue covers a number of thematic topics on internal security, naval and air warfare, nuclear terrorism, China’s military modernization, and the logistics support agreement with USA.

    Officers’ Promotion Policy in the Army

    It is desirable that policies are not tinkered with after every change of command and are allowed to stabilise over a period of 5 to 10 years before they are reviewed for their efficacy.

    From the Managing Editor

    This issue of the Journal of Defence Studies is being published 50 years after China attacked India across the Himalayas. A majority of Indians and Chinese today do not have any personal memories of the war. Since the war was seen as a victory for China and a defeat for India, it naturally evokes different sentiments in the two countries. For China, it was a punitive strike to teach India a lesson, to make it accept a lower position in the hierarchy of nations and, perhaps, an opportunity to convey its strength to the world at large, and particularly to the two superpowers of the day.
