Transition to Guardianship: The Indian Navy 1991-2000
The volume Transition to Guardianship: The Indian Navy 1991–2000 is the last of the trilogy by the author, the first two being Transition to Triumph: 1965–75 and Transition to Eminence 1975–1990, portraying the history of the Indian navy on a wide canvas covering thirty-five years. The period 1991–2000 was a challenging time due to the sweeping changes on the geopolitical and economic fronts. In the wake of the Gulf War, the world witnessed the specter of spiraling inflation due to a hike in oil prices. The unprecedented spike stunned the defense budgets, which called for extraordinary abilities to cope with grim circumstances in the face of limited funding for defense projects. It was a time of trial for the navy as it was called upon to do much more with much less. The situation was aggravated with the disintegration of the USSR, India's biggest defense supplier.
