A wonderful introductory book for anyone who's interested in India's IR and geopolitics. Covers the developments from the Cold War Era to the present with respect to countries which are and have been India's major interests, with amazing references to ancient Indian foreign policy. Very lucid. The book was absolutely intact and delivered punctually.
If you have interest in diplomacy or wants to develop interest in foreign diplomacy n all then you must read this. I totally loved the book. I didn't feel bored at all at any point in the book. Highly recommended.
