Description

The author critically examines the ends and means of Indian foreign policy, its basic determinants, the political institutions which have shaped this policy, the organization and functioning of the interministerial institutions and the Ministry of External affairs, and the personal role of the Foreign Minister in the making of foreign policy since 1947.

This work is the only comprehensive and systemic study of all the factors which go into the making of India’s foreign policy in a theoretical perspective, without compromising on historical and empirical data. The author also makes many important recommendations for improving the structure and process of foreign policy-making in India.

This extensively revised third edition incorporates all the changes in India’s external environment and domestic milieu since 1980 which have influenced the making of foreign policy during the last two decades. Like the two earlier editions of the book, this third edition will also be of immense value not only to all advanced students of Indian foreign policy and international relations, but also to the wider foreign policy and international relations communities in India and abroad.
