Indian Foreign Policy
In this robust and comprehensive analysis, Chris Ogden introduces students to the key dimensions of Indian foreign policy from her emergence as a modern state in 1947 to the present day. Combining theoretical insight with numerous case studies and profiles, he examines the foreign policy making process, strategic thinking, the crucial search for economic growth, and India s difficult regional position and troubled borders. Tracking the trajectory of one of the 21st century s major Asian and global powers, later chapters focus on New Delhi s multilateral interaction, great power dynamics, and expanding relations with the United States and the world.
Critically assessing what kind of great power India can and wants to be, this wide-ranging introduction will be an invaluable text for students of South Asian politics, foreign policy, and international relations.

About Chris Ogden
Table of contents
"Using four central themes as key to understanding the motivations of Indian elites in the realm of foreign policy, this lucid book provides a coherent narrative about the potential and challenges that confront India as it makes its way up the global interstate hierarchy. It is an important contribution not only to the study of Indian foreign policy but also to the way in which the subject is taught."
Harsh V. Pant, King's College London

It is up to date and contains helpful charts, tables, illustrations, maps and questions. It will prove a great aid in the classroom."
