Product description


The Oxford Handbook of Indian Foreign Policy is an essential read for students at all levels and scholars who want to familiarise themselves with Indias strategic culture, the role of interest groups and other domestic factors on India's foreign policy, Indian Ocean, AfPak and emerging Asia. Scholars are encouraged to have this as a core textbook on Indias foreign policy and libraries must have copies of the book. (Dr Raj Verma, Sonda News)

Has enormous value in providing context to why India behaves the way it does in its vicinity, and in the wider world. It provides insights into the objectives, at various stages, of elements of foreign policy. It tells us about the decision making processes within the country. It tells us of the shifting priorities of the state as well as the changing nature of diplomacy, and the specialized knowledge it now requires. It tells us about the contribution of some of Indias top leaders to thinking about Indias global engagement...And, in a fundamental way, the Handbook tells us the story of India and its journey from being on the margins of the global power structure yet with ambitions of shaping it to arriving at a stage where it can exercise influence. (Prashant Jha, Hindustan Times)

This handbook of Indian foreign policy is a serious and substantial contribution to the debate on Indias foreign policy approach and engagements in an era that is witnessing significant changes. (Talmiz Ahmad, Frontline)

Indian foreign policy has been a relatively under-researched subject, due, in some measure, to the lack of authentic source material. However, there is a growing interest in the subject and the OUP Handbook does a creditable job of providing a comprehensive survey, spread over 50 chapters, of examining the origins and development of independent Indias engagement with the world ... the three editors have done a commendable job of providing a framework to what could easily have become an unwieldy collection. (Rakesh Sood, The Indian Express)

The book nicely interweaves how national, regional, and global factors; roles of formal and informal actors; and objective (real-structural) and subjective (identity-related) factors shape Indias foreign policy affairs. The book is cohesive, clear, and concise; conveys the essence of its topic; and concludes with a discussion of strategies to support Indias growth as a rising or constrained power in global affairs. (CHOICE)

an excellent survey ... essential reading for those who want to understand Indiaâs foreign policy (Raj Verma, Royal Society for Asian Affairs)

Product 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.
