Since the early 1990s, India's economic interests and its self imagination as an emerging global power have assumed a higher priority in defining India's foreign policy and security goals. This has guided the Indian policy makers to intensify its engagements with Iran, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries - around which Indian foreign policy in the region revolves today in the political and economic sense of the term. This book deals with the evolving political and economic dynamics and interactions of India with global and regional powers in West Asia, with particular focus on the Persian Gulf in the post-Cold War period. It examines India's multi-dimensional relations with global powers such as the US, Russia, China, and regional powers and organizations like Iran, Israel, Turkey, and GCC respectively.
