    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This seemed to be a basic material for easy understanding of the beginners may be.. This books is heavily tilted on the American, Pakistan, Russian and Chinese side may be because our all other policies are influenced by our relations with these countries. The author has tried to justify Nehru's non alignment in the beginning and later how India was right in 'shaking hands' with Russia to counter bon homie between America and Pakistan. He has dedicated very little space to non-Congress prime minis This seemed to be a basic material for easy understanding of the beginners may be.. This books is heavily tilted on the American, Pakistan, Russian and Chinese side may be because our all other policies are influenced by our relations with these countries. The author has tried to justify Nehru's non alignment in the beginning and later how India was right in 'shaking hands' with Russia to counter bon homie between America and Pakistan. He has dedicated very little space to non-Congress prime minister and has most of the time lauded the Congress foreign policies without any critical analysis. Nevertheless the take away from this book is that modern foreign relation is based on economics and trade. Almost every powerful nation wants to have good and mutually beneficial relationships with India mainly because of vast market it provides to ever churning mills of the Europe and west. And secondly, it's about securing peaceful borders, not letting your neighbors gain too much heft in the region, aligning with other powers with 'vested interest' to counter the imbalance and most importantly securing the supply of energy i.e., oil which was the case earlier and now its nuclear material. Pretty much that is the gist of this book. You create a stake in the economy of your 'less friendly' country and you get them on the negotiating table to join hands for global and mutual good. India Pakistan issue is an exception though to which the author has alluded in detail but personally I didn't gain anything from this. Australia is not covered here. That's about it. Any incorrectness or mistake here, in this review might be due to my limited understanding of foreign relations but I am pretty sure i have summed up the book well. P.s I read it because my brother who is preparing for services had it.

    Tried to keep things clear but real very bias towards congress specially Nehru. You will find him criticising NDA govt. at many places overall good book giving a good base towards relationship with major nations.

    The book is really good for the beginners, just to get a hang of India's foreign policy.

    Shubham Chakraborty

    The research was not done properly. The sources quoted for information used in the book were not satisfactory. This book will fail to satisfy readers of Ramachandra Guha or Gurcharan Das.

    Ankit Rana

    Good for simple introduction to foreign policy. Lack of references do not provide much credibility.
