India-USSR Relations, 1947-1971: From Ambivalence to Steadfastness, Volume 1
This monograph seeks to highlight India s relations with the USSR from the day of independence that is 15 August 1947 to the consummation of second liberation in the form of the emergence of Bangladesh as an independent state in December 1971. This happened to be the most crucial period in the contemporary history of India in that it coincided with the formative period in our foreign policy during which India had to face many a crisis the process of management of which determined the course of our relationship with the major powers. All important issues have been treated in detail in the body of the essay with particular reference to those controversies that caused much ripples on the otherwise placid waters of Indian diplomacy. The section dealing with the Bangladesh crisis covers a wide range of international factors that helped India to achieve this signal success.
