Description

This comprehensive volume brings together essays, by well-known scholars associated with south Asian and International relations Studies, on significant themes of India’s foreign policy. The wide-ranging collection provides analyses of the interactive framework of elements of continuity and change that have cumulatively shaped India’s efforts in negotiating with the external world. The volume also attempts to situate India’s role in the context of the Third World.

The essays included in this volume deal with a vast spectrum of subjects and issues, encompassing the political, ideological, security and economic aspects of India’s foreign policy. They critically analyze issues related to reforms and liberalization, regional co-operation, human, national and energy security, and the overall strategy of India’s foreign policy since independence. In the process, they also unveil the complexities of relations between India and major powers like the United States, Russia and China, and shed fresh insights on India’s ties with important regions including West Asia, Southeast Asia, Africa and the Indian Ocean rim.

The trajectories of India’s ties with its South Asian neighbours, particularly Pakistan, are scrutinized with the idea of exploring the possibilities of promoting south Asian regional co-operation. The policy analysis and insights offered in the volume would be useful to students, scholars and policy-makers studying India’s engagement with the world.

REVIEWS

Firmly anchored in a conception of making more audible, voices belonging to less ethnocentric disciplinary locations, genres and contexts, this Reader is a collection of first-rate theoretical engagements relating to International Relations from across India.
-Kanti Bajpai and Siddharth Mallavarapu (eds)
International Relations in India: Bringing Theory Back Home

This companion volume is based on the premise that good theory is vindicated in practice. Drawing on eclectic theoretical sensibilities ranging from realism to newer social constructivist variants, this Reader witnesses the application of these theories to real world issues.
