"This book goes in depth on different aspects of India's foreign policy. Starting from the Nehru era, this book not only presents decade wise policy changes in India with respect to different countries, but also gives a brief analysis of India's neighbouring countries with special emphasis on China and Pakistan.
The changes in world economy and effect of globalisation has forced many countries to change their policies, and so is the case with India. In the recent past India's foreign policy has also seen many changes and this book traces all these changes.
Various world organisations also put pressure on a country's foreign policy. A special chapter has been given inside about important organisations. Though foreign policy is such a vast subject that it can not be put in a single book, but we have tried sincerely to give the readers maximum knowledge on India's foreign policy and its neighbours."
