About the Book:
This book is an attempt to explore multidimensional nature
of Indian foreign policy at the beginning of Twenty First century. The primary
purpose of independent India’s foreign policy was to help enable the domestic
transformation of India from a poor and backward society into one which could
offer her people their basic needs and an opportunity to achieve their potential.
Nehru delineated the role that foreign policy could play in achieving this,
by striving to create an external environment which would accelerate capital
flows from abroad, increase the use of science and technology, help modernization
of India’s infrastructure, ensure energy security etc. Today, too, India’s
principal foreign policy objectives remain a peaceful environment and strategic
space and autonomy. This necessitates good relations with major powers and economies,
and the neighbours. This volume will prove invaluable to those studying politics
and international relations and foreign policy
