Description

This book on Indo-US relations between 1947 and 1974 is meant to be a disclaimer. It argues that not everything in the United States changed with 11 September 2001. The guiding principles of American foreign policy and the justifications given often have remained the same.

The case of Indo-US relations is but an example of that.

The book also shows that from the Indian side both antagonism and partial alliances with the United States that had led India progressively towards militarism remain the features of the Indian outlook, and incidents of 11 September have not changed that scenario a bit.

The salient features of Indo-US relations between 1947 and 1974 to a large extent still continue to provide the major impetus between these two countries today. Hence revisiting those years and a rethinking about the histories of the founding years of Indo-US relations have become a necessity. This book endeavors to fulfill it.
