Government publications and documents regarding Kashmir
This proposal is for 15 individual titles related to the Kashmir situation, primarily during the late 1950s and 1960s. Included are two Secret Reports by government entities related to potential terrorist activity. Indiana University is the only known holder of these two reports, which were gifted to the institution in 2005. The additional titles are other related government documents from this time period, also scarcely held in WorldCat. Most of these are published by entities within or related to the Pakistani government, as the Indian government publications that are both relevant and held at IU are more widely held.
