Review quote

Professor B.M. Jain, an established scholar of India's foreign policy, has written a timely, topical and comprehensive analysis of India's emerging foreign policy. His work addresses an important lacuna in the field. The book will be of use to academics, policymakers, journalists and others interested in the on-going transformation of India's foreign policy. -- Sumit Ganguly, Indiana University Global Power: India?s Foreign Policy, 1947-2006 is a major work in the fields of foreign policy analysis in general and the international relations of South Asia in particular. The book begins with a thoughtful review of concept formation with regard toglobalization, which draws attention to the neglected importance of regional effects and the shortcomings of existing paradigms. Jain establishes the unevenly structured nature of globalization as a backdrop for foreign policy analysis. He offers a tourde force on the major components of Indian foreign policy, such as economic diplomacy, relations with the US, Russia, China, and Pakistan as individual states and the Middle East and East and Central Asia as regions. This comprehensive review, which reveals the importance of India in both global and regional contexts, culminates in consideration of this state?s ambitions on the world stage. The review of future prospects reveals India ?s enormous potential as a global power while also acknowledging the Asian giant?s ongoing problems in terms of institutional weakness and accountability. -- Patrick James, University of Southern California Global Power: India's Foreign Policy, 1947-2006 is a major work in the fields of foreign policy analysis in general and the international relations of South Asia in particular.
