Overview

South Africa’s future is increasingly tied up with that of India. While trade and investment between the two countries is intensifying, they share long-standing historical ties and have much in common: both countries are important players in the global South. As India emerges as a major economic power, the need to understand these links becomes ever more pressing. Can the two countries enter balanced forms of exchange or will India inevitably dominate? What forms of transnational political community between these two regions have yet to be researched and understood? South Africa and India addresses these questions and offers new approaches for researching transnational histories.
