What People are Saying About This

Mohan Malik

This volume brings together some leading experts to provide an up-to-date analysis of India’s external relations in the age of power transitions that will serve as an essential resource for students, scholars, and practitioners. The Engagement of India fills an important gap in existing literature insofar as it explores the engagement strategies employed by other states to shape the foreign and economic policies of India as a rising power.

"This volume brings together some leading experts to provide an up-to-date analysis of India's external relations in the age of power transitions that will serve as an essential resource for students, scholars, and practitioners. The Engagement of India fills an important gap in existing literature insofar as it explores the engagement strategies employed by other states to shape the foreign and economic policies of India as a rising power."—Mohan Malik, professor of Asian security, Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies

"As India emerges as a significant regional, if not global, player, other states seem increasingly interested to 'engage' it. This book explores what those states are doing and whether they are succeeding in it, and also India's reactions to these novel initiatives. Written for both experts and general readers, The Engagement of India makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of India's evolving international relations."—Swaran Singh, professor of diplomacy & disarmament, School of International Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi

"India's rise is often understood only in terms of India's own policies and actions. The Engagement of India argues convincingly that India's rise in the international system must also be understood as a dynamic process of interactions between India and other states in a complex international arena. This brilliant collection of essays is essential reading for all those interested in the rise of great powers and in India and its future role in the international system."—Amitabh Mattoo, director, Australia India Institute, professor of International Relations, University of Melbourne and Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi
