Short description: 

This Oxford Handbook provides a single authoritative analysis of the various dimensions of Indian Foreign Policy.

Full description: 

Following the end of the Cold War, the economic reforms in the early 1990s, and ensuing impressive growth rates, India has emerged as a leading voice in global affairs, particularly on international economic issues. Its domestic market is fast-growing and India is becoming increasingly important to global geo-strategic calculations, at a time when it has been outperforming many other growing economies, and is the only Asian country with the heft to counterbalance China. Indeed, so much is India defined internationally by its economic performance (and challenges) that other dimensions of its internal situation, notably relevant to security, and of its foreign policy have been relatively neglected in the existing literature. This handbook presents an innovative, high profile volume, providing an authoritative and accessible examination and critique of Indian foreign policy. The handbook brings together essays from a global team of leading experts in the field to provide a comprehensive study of the various dimensions of Indian foreign policy.

Table of contents: 

SECTION I: INTRODUCTION; SECTION II: EVOLUTION OF INDIAN FOREIGN POLICY; SECTION III: INSTITUTIONS AND ACTORS; SECTION IV: GEOGRAPHY; SECTION V: KEY PARTNERSHIPS; SECTION VI: MULTILATERAL DIPLOMACY; SECTION VII: LOOKING AHEAD
