Abstract: No Asian conflict has proved more deadly, costly, or intrac table than that which continues to divide India and Pakistan over Kashmir. For the past half-century, since I first became aware of this conflict's potential for regional destruction, I have pondered the alternatives for its resolution. Many wise friends-Indian, Pakistani, American, European, and Australian-have assisted me in understanding the complexity of the conflict.
