This book provides a fairly comprehensive account of the evolution of India's foreign policy from 1947 to the present day. It is organized primarily in the form of India's relations with its neighbours and with key states in the global order. All the chapters in this volume utilize the levelof analysis approach, a well-established conceptual scheme in the study of international politics in organizing the substantive cases. They provide crisp and lucid accounts of its developments in various parts of the world. The book is significant because there are no other viable edited volumes onthe evolution of Indian foreign policy.Each chapter follows a common conceptual framework using the level of analysis approach. This framework looks at the evolution of India's foreign policy from the standpoints of systemic, national, and decision-making perspectives. In the introductory chapter, the editor carefully spells out theintellectual antecedents of the level of analysis framework in straightforward, lucid, and discursive prose, and applies to the substantive chapters in the volume.
Sumit Ganguly is Rabindranath Tagore Chair of Indian Cultures and Civilizations and Professor of Political Science at Indiana University in Bloomington.
