內容介紹

According to A.S. Dulat: “Loving your country does not mean hating the other.”
“What is not good for your neighbour cannot be good for you,” added General Asad Durrani.
“The best ideas start as conversations. This one is a genuine dialogue, not two monologues.”—Aditya Sinha

 

印巴兩國情報局局長面對面?雙方就印巴關係侃侃而談?


全球皆知印巴關係緊張。這次對話,他們願意留下還是離開?

 

《印巴探員面對面:假想和平》(The Spy Chronicles)以對話的形式展現長年未解的印巴關係,由資深記者阿迪亞・什哈(Aditya Sinha)從中主持,印度及巴基斯坦兩國最高情報探員面對面,對印巴議題侃侃而談。在緊張的印巴關係趨緩和之時,喀什米爾(Kashmir)的局勢仍惴惴不安,牽動著鄰近國家的局勢與和平。

 

2016年,探討印巴關係的一系列對話發生了!

 

印度調查分析局(RAW)的前局長A.S.杜拉(A.S. Dulat)以及巴基斯坦三軍情報局(ISI)總幹事阿薩・德拉尼(Asad Durrani),由資深記者阿迪亞・什哈(Aditya Sinha)發起雙方對話。兩人因身份特殊,無法在自己的國家對談,於是這些對話選擇在伊斯坦堡(Istanbul)、曼谷(Bangkok)和尼泊爾首都加德滿都(Kathmandu)進行。對談提及的人事物在在撼動南亞局勢,從兩人的眼中可見其對次大陸的外交政治的瞭若指掌,並就各層面作深入的探討。其中包含:喀什米爾議題、南亞虔誠軍頭目哈菲斯·穆罕默德·薩伊德(Hafiz Saeed)、蓋達組織首領奧薩瑪·賓·拉登(Osama bin Laden)、美俄兩國在印巴關係中扮演的角色,以及恐怖組織如何影響印巴兩國一度擁有和平的機會。

 

當巴基斯坦阿薩・德拉尼將軍 (Asad Durrani)第一次聽到這個計畫時笑了出來說,「就算這個寫成小說,也沒有人會信!」當兩國因種族、信仰、領土及利益大動干戈,雙方各自最神秘、最核心的情報探員長官,這段舉世難得的對話或許可以為印巴關係提供一絲絲解套方案?

書評

FROM THE AUTHORS
“We have tried to stay as close to the truth as we believe it to be even if some of it is regarded as fiction. The reality is that there are normally more than two sides to most stories. Truth is a kaleidoscope.” — A.S. DULAT

“Some of us are bursting with wisdom that can hardly wait to be shared. One of the more useful means to do so would indeed be an exchange amongst key players on the opposite sides—provided, of course, we were prepared to concede our faults and provide a different narrative.” — ASAD DURRANI

“As the two spymasters say, they are aware of the stakes. What they say to each other, around a table, their guards down, counts for something. Their conversation goes to the heart of the India-Pakistan relationship.”—ADITYA SINHA

 

REVIEW
“The Spy Chronicles is possibly one of the closest looks at India-Pakistan relations. It is not often that you have two spymasters from opposite sides confer—to our knowledge, this is the first book of its kind. We hope it will make a positive contribution, and we are delighted to have worked on this unique project.” —Krishan Chopra, Publisher, Non-fiction and Business, HarperCollins India
