    This book brings together new perspectives on India’s foreign policy in the light of a constantly shifting world order. From India’s relations in its immediate neighborhood to its China policy, from India-US relations under Biden to Quad, from Grand Strategy to peacekeeping, this book brings to the fore the shifting terrains of global politics and India’s significant place in it.

    The chapters in the volume:

    • Critically examine changing preoccupations of India’s foreign policy and its geopolitical interests, including its Act East Policy;
    • Include comprehensive inputs on India’s China policy and relations with Japan;
    • Explore India’s relations with the USA, the Middle-East, Afghanistan, and Central Asia;
    • Discuss at length India’s nuclear, energy, and foreign investment policies;
    • Analyze India’s positioning on the emergence of the Indo-Pacific discourse.

    This volume will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of political science and international relations. It will also be of use to foreign policy and diplomacy practitioners, career bureaucrats and government think tanks.
