To unravel the Kashmir knot one must wade through a deep valley of questions armed with fresh material on the historical and political context of this perennial debate, together with novel legal analysis of the Kashmir issue.

Do the rules that created Pakistan make J&K a part of India?

Is not the routing of the China–Pakistan Economic Corridor through the territory of J&K illegal?

How did J&K become a ‘disputed territory’ in the first place?

The book explores these, and many more issues, to piece together a realistic solution to the Kashmir conundrum.
