Availability: Ready to download

This book is a comprehensive examination of the dynamics of India's energy security policy in the domestic and international context. Over the past decade and a half, energy security has been a constant driver of India's foreign policy. Successive Indian governments have emphasized it as a major concern, next only to food security.

Over the past decade and a half, energy security has been a constant driver of India's foreign policy. Successive Indian governments have emphasized it as a major concern, next only to food security. The long-term satisfaction of India's energy security needs calls for a fresh and multi-pronged approach. This is imperative in the light of the recent dynamics of India's foreign policy and the challenges that India is facing in its quest for energy security, mainly in the context of diversification of sources abroad and shift to alternative sources in a carbon-controlled environment. This is further intensified in the context of the complex and competitive strategic rivalry between India and China in the Indo-Pacific region, as India looks outward and expands its outreach to meet its pressing energy security challenges. The book presents an in-depth analysis of all such domestic and foreign policy challenges and measures to meet India's fast-growing energy demand in a competitive geopolitical environment.

    This is indeed a pioneering work in understanding India’s foreign and geostrategic policies from the prism of complex energy-pursuits and environmental security concerns. Ever since the end of the Cold War India has been witnessing an unprecedented rise in its material, economic and strategic power and the accompanying change in India’s foreign-security behaviour during this period has been visible and widely acknowledged by the international community.

Ever since the end of the Cold War India has been witnessing an unprecedented rise in its material, economic and strategic power and the accompanying change in India’s foreign-security behaviour during this period has been visible and widely acknowledged by the international community. In the last decade, energy-pursuit has slowly emerged as a top foreign-policy priority for the Indian political elites and the foreign policy mandarins influencing India’s policy choices. Simultaneously, growing environmental security concerns emanating from the vast Indian subcontinental landmass are going to keep all current and future security planners of the region, extremely occupied. Against this backdrop, the subject of India’s energy pursuits and the concerns around environmental security has gained immense importance deserving a detailed scholarly enquiry. In this regard, Dr Ashok Sharma’s latest book not only fulfils that critical gap but also enlightens general readers interested in India’s foreign policy behaviour. It is a must-read for anyone interested to gain a deeper insight into India’s emerging new-age security threats.

    This book must be in the reading bucket-list for those readers who are interested to understand the complexity of India's quest for energy security. There can't be more opportune time than this to have detailed overview analyses of this timely relevant subject when the global geopolitics has become quite multi-polar with the most dynamic geostrategic manoeuvering of various power-centres around the globe.

There can't be more opportune time than this to have detailed overview analyses of this timely relevant subject when the global geopolitics has become quite multi-polar with the most dynamic geostrategic manoeuvering of various power-centres around the globe. For India particularly, "Energy Security" has no doubt been the most influencing factor at the core of any geostrategic decision-making. In the current scenario, while the transactional US President Trump leaves no stone unturned to fuel the uncertainty in the strategic partnership of India with other nations through their unilateral CAATSA sanctions, it's imperative to understand the complexity of the subject that's well addressed in this book. Dr Ashok Sharma has comprehensively dealt with the subject deciphering its multi-dimensional aspects. A true scholarly work. Overall, turns out it's a quite interesting read. Those interested to have a good grasp of this subject should definitely go through the book and share their review about the same.

This calls for a new grand strategy that transcends beyond non-alignment to multi-alignment. The book by Prof Ashok Sharma is a timely contribution to unravel the emerging India which has to meet its growing energy needs, in a tumultuous world order. It lays a road-map for the scholars of international relations to explore the hitherto untapped potential of energy resources and its everlasting impact on the globalized economy and world politics. The book by Prof Ashok Sharma is insightful, elegantly written and stimulates our thoughts about the future course of action, in the world order, while surfing through the pandemic. It seeks to address the larger issues ranging from energy security, oil politics, shape of the global markets, geopolitics to geostrategic moves.

    India has struggled for decades to cope with the vagaries of international oil economy. The dependence on Oil imports has significantly affected India’s quest for energy security.
