Book Description:

A clear-eyed look at India’s role in Asia and the rest of the world in the 21st century

One of India’s most respected foreign policy thinkers talks about the many questions India faces as it tries to find its way into the world of Asian geopolitics, which is getting more complicated. Shivshankar Menon, a former Indian foreign secretary, and national security adviser look at how India has dealt with the changing situation in the region since it got its independence in 1947. From leading the “nonaligned” movement during the cold war to being seen as a balance to China now, India is often an afterthought for world leaders until they realize how much they need it.

Menon looks at India’s own policy decisions throughout its history. He pays special attention to how India dealt with the rise of China and other regional powers. Menon also looks to the future and how India’s policies will likely change to deal with new and old problems.

As India’s economy grows and it gains more power worldwide, its domestic issues and international decisions become more critical. India will be affected more by what is going on in the rest of the world. Menon makes a strong geopolitical case for India to become increasingly involved in Asia and the rest of the world in a good way for everyone and works toward a more open, pluralistic, and inclusive world order.
