India's Foreign Relations, 1947-2007
This book analyses India’s relations with its neighbours (China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka) and other world powers (USA, UK, and Russia) over a span of 60 years. It traces the roots of independent India’s foreign policy from the Partition and its fallout, its nascent years under Nehru, and non-alignment to the influence of economic liberalization and globalization. The volume delves into the underlying reasons of persistent problems confronting India’s foreign policy-makers, as well as foreign-policy interface with defence and domestic policies.
This book will be indispensable to students, scholars and teachers of South Asian studies, international relations, political science, and modern Indian history.

The book is wonderfully insightful. Even though, I lived through these times in India, but nothing of any substance came out into the media, so remained largely hidden from public eyes. A few details like the precarious position India was in 1991 on economic front, were largely forgotten and their enormity was never realised then, so it was so nice to reminisce all this again via these pages.
