National Security does not imply merely absence of military threat. It is far more complex and encompasses several dimensions in the Nation’s internal and external environments. A new paradigm that synthesizes political, social, economic and institutional dimensions internally, along with military power, economic strength, foreign policy and soft power in the external environment, is presented.

Citizens and Soldiers have to strive together in this National mission. Once they participate in this endeavour with patriotic fervour and enthusiasm, we can attain not just security, but also the higher goal or resurgence. The book analyses the National Security and Resurgence Paradigm in the context of the geopolitical challenges in a multipolar world, in which India is poised to play a significant role.
