Comprised of essays by a host of leading scholars, this comprehensive volume examines the issues that will most influence India’s development of a policy approach towards the states of West Asia. India’s relations with this region have historically been based on geographical proximity and cultural and religious affinity, but the significant role West Asia will play in fulfilling India’s burgeoning energy, trade, and economic needs is indisputable. Recent momentous developments in the region have the potential to impact India’s security and will influence the parameters within which Indian interests will locate themselves in the future. Topics ranging from the rise of Pan-Islamism to political transitions in countries such as Turkey and China are also addressed in this extensive study.
