Professor Asanga Abeyagoonasekera is the Director General of the National Security Think Tank of Sri Lanka under the Ministry of Defence. 

This book is a compilation of essays on several themes intended to provoke thought on and promote understanding about everyday political and social life on an island facing constant geopolitical and domestic political challenges. The themes of this book are: 4/21 Terror Attack and National Security; China, Belt and Road Initiative and Sri Lankan Foreign Policy; Geopolitics; Sustaining Democracy and Facing a Pandemic; and Domestic Political Stability, Leadership, and Economic Crime. 

Most essays have captured the domestic viewpoint from which to begin drawing a wider picture of the global geopolitical tapestry. The chapters enframe a variety of domestic political incidents, conflicts of various actors, and the conundrum of an island in the Indian Ocean, stuck in the triangular maritime power dynamics among the United States, China and India. They also examine the influences from foreign netions towards Sri Lanka's foreign policy and the dynamics of security challenges in the larger geosphere and marine sphere of South Asia and the Indian Ocean respectively. The chapters offer the reader an Olympian viewpoint of the challenges Sri Lanka faces, attempting to find connections and patterns towards greater external geopolitical influence and how it impacts domestic politics.

'Voices of Peace' weaves together the narratives of ten former LTTE cadres and ten SLM personnel who actively fought at the front lines.

These once active agents in war; have become passive witnesses in the transition to peace. This book provides a platform for the stories of these unheard voices of Sri Lanka's protracted conflict and a safe space to restore their agency, by empowering them in the ongoing peace process. In 'Voices of Peace' we hear their story by listening to them rather than talking about them. In a country that has long been divided, it gives us the opportunity to interact with both sides of the conflict, blur the lines between divisions, and start thinking about our common goals. It is a discovery of what 'we do not yet know' about the conflict and post-conflict situation. By listening to their voices, we can discover what more needs to be done for peace and reconciliation in Sri Lanka. 'Voices of Peace' aims to encourage meaningful public discussion and the continuation of dialogue, and help pave the way to a Sri Lanka where diversity is recognized, accepted, and even celebrated.

Channa Wickremesekera is a Sri Lankan born writer living in Australia. This is his fifth work of fiction.

An examination of the challenges face by Sri Lanka's military forces during the first phase of the conflict with the LTTE.

Starting with the first deployment of the army in Jaffna in 1979, the book follows the army on to its first major military operation in May 1987.
The military's response demonstrated their inadequate training as well as their politcal masters' skewed perception of the conflict, frequently leading to disastrous outcomes. But it was also a period of learning. Despite many bloody setbacks and failures the armed forces gradually learned the rudiments of fighting a guerilla enemy, the culmination of this apprenticeship being the launching of 'Operation Liberation', the first brigade-strength operation carried out by the Sri Lankan army.
