'Everyman's War sensitizes us to the importance of national security and its various facets. It lends a balanced and definite view of India's inclination towards reacting 'soft' to aggression and war. Raman sets the standards high with his riveting essays. A book that challenges a reader's thought-process about war, its causes and its consequences.' - Narayana Murthy, Executive Chairman, Infosys 'This deftly written, highly readable book of short essays has an important message: security is full of moral ambiguity and beware of the person who claims 'moral clarity'. This is not a popular idea with hawks or those who see the world in black and white, but it is consistent with the plural, soft power of India - a country that has always been a weak state and a strong society and whose rise is not a threat to the world, unlike China.' Gurcharan Das 'Raghu Raman has produced a very good book from his lucid articles in Mint on a subject that cannot be ignored by any citizen of India. In one of his articles points to the continuing deterioration in the country's institutions and of citizen's respect for them. Raghu says the Armed Forces is the one institution all citizens respect most of all. Since he wrote those lines, leaders of the Armed Forces have been embroiled in several controversies, causing citizens to become dismayed even about the Armed Forces. He talks of the need to rebuild trust in institutions and the need for institutionalized capabilities for collaboration amongst existing institutions. Having pointed to a widespread institutional problem in India today Raghu then focusses on agendas for reforms related to internal security. His book is a valuable compilation of ideas for solutions to the organizational crisis that is undermining the State's ability to provide security to its citizens, which citizens must become engaged with.' - Arun Maira, Member, Planning Commission of India and Former Chairman, Boston Consulting Group, India 'In this series of articles, Raghu Raman displays a deep knowledge and insight into the many complex factors that impact security issues in India. I have been an avid reader of his articles over the years and have always been impressed with his deep understanding of the complex socio-economic and geopolitical realities that are so important for appreciating this extremely nuanced subject. He has raised some red flags about the very real and interconnected challenges the country faces. It behooves us to heed his warning call, as well as pay attention to the rather radical solutions he proposes, to keep India secure, to continue our growth trajectory and to safeguard our way of life for future generations.' - Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra & Mahindra
