About the Book Domestic and external determinants of India's foreign policy, during the last two decades, have undergone significant transformations. These have led to reorientation in India's world view and its relations with other nation states. Magnitude of these changes has been so vast that it has resulted in paradigm shift in India's foreign policy.
The volume provides theoretical understanding of the emerging world order, and also reveals about the operational dynamics of such change in the new millennium. India's interactions with global power centers, neighbours, extended neighbourhood and regions and institutions have also been examined. India's security concerns in the post-nuclear status period have been evaluated vis--vis conventional and non-conventional threats. Even issues like energy security and economic policies are given ample space visualizing the contemporary global economic developments. New concerns in the form of international terrorism, environment and refugees have been incorporated to provide a holistic picture of changing contours of India's foreign policy.
The book may be beneficial for students, teachers, diplomats, policy makers, as well as, common readers engaged in understanding the current discourse on India's foreign policy moorings.
