Malone, C. Raja Mohan, and Srinath Raghavan India has emerged as a leading voice in global affairs in the past two decades.  Its fast-growing domestic market largely explains the ardour with which Delhi is courted by powers great and small. India is also becoming increasingly important to global geo-strategic calculations, being the only Asian country with the heft to counterbalance China over time.  Nevertheless, India’s foreign policy has been relatively neglected in the existing literature. This hand-book, edited by three widely recognized students of the topic, provides an extensive survey of India’s external relations. The authors include leading Indian scholars and commentators of the field and several outstanding foreign scholars and practitioners. They address factors in Indian foreign policy flowing from both history and geography and also discuss key relationships, issues and multilateral forums through which the country’s international relations are refracted.

The Oxford Handbook of Indian Foreign Policy
Edited by David M. Malone, C. Raja Mohan, and Srinath Raghavan

India has emerged as a leading voice in global affairs in the past two decades.  Its fast-growing domestic market largely explains the ardour with which Delhi is courted by powers great and small. India is also becoming increasingly important to global geo-strategic calculations, being the only Asian country with the heft to counterbalance China over time.  Nevertheless, India’s foreign policy has been relatively neglected in the existing literature.

This hand-book, edited by three widely recognized students of the topic, provides an extensive survey of India’s external relations. The authors include leading Indian scholars and commentators of the field and several outstanding foreign scholars and practitioners. They address factors in Indian foreign policy flowing from both history and geography and also discuss key relationships, issues and multilateral forums through which the country’s international relations are refracted.

Guests of Honour:
Ambassador Shyam Saran – Former Foreign Secretary, Government of India
Ambassador KS Bajpai – Former Ambassador to Pakistan, China and the US
Dr Arvind Subramanian – Chief Economic Advisor, Government of India
