India, one of the largest and most broadly industrialized of the rising middle powers of the Third World, has increasing influence on the outcome of the major issues of global interdependency: nuclear proliferation, natural resources control, trade relations, and population growth. Yet, the Western world generally, and the United States in particular, remains ill equipped to understand and adapt to this rapidly changing global reality. The topics in this volume were chosen for their importance to understanding the basis of India's global role.
