Preti Taneja writes that the “mass of papers in the UN archives since 1947 reveal much international diplomacy, but a lack of political will to intervene” on Kashmir (What is happening in Kashmir? The best books to help understand, 15 August). Forget intervention, there is no political will even to condemn Narendra Modi’s action in Kashmir. Is there any book that explains the reason for that? My guess is “trade deals”.
