Overview

In this timely volume, two leading experts on India's foreign policy bring together essays written over the last 15 years by prominent scholars that challenge some of the commonly held perceptions about India's foreign policy. It explores and challenges several myths about Indian foreign policy-that it lacks strategic culture; there are no clearly discernible sets of principles; and it is largely idealistic in its orientation. The volume gives incisive insights into the key features of India's foreign policy. It also traces the changes that it has undergone over the years, and highlights contemporary policy challenges. In four sections, this volume analyses: India's thinking about its strategic culture and its conception of how to deal with the world; India's power and its foreign policy infrastructure; India's external relationships with major countries; and, finally, India's global diplomacy on issues of climate change and its approach to the WTO.
