This handbook offers a comprehensive overview of South Asian foreign policy, examining the complex history and present state of South Asian foreign policy, the foreign policy of the countries of the region, as well as their relationships with their neighbors and key external players, such as China and the United States, in an effort to understand South Asia’s place in the world order. It illustrates the future trajectory of foreign policy in the region and analyses future of regional arrangements like SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) and BIMSTEC.
The handbook is structured in five parts, each representing a focused area of enquiry:
- Foreign Policy
- Relations within South Asia
- Relations within Indo-Pacific
- Relations with China, Europe and the United States
A carefully selected collection of 26 chapters written by experts on South Asian foreign, economic, and security policy, this handbook provides an objective yet accessible overview of the history and current state of foreign policy of each country and the region. It is an authoritative reference work for academics and students as well as international think tanks, research institutes, and non-governmental organizations working on South Asian Politics, Asian Politics, Foreign Politics, International Affairs, World History, and International Relations.
India will be the world's most populous country by 2024 and its third largest economy by 2028. But the size of our population and a sense of historical greatness alone are insufficient to guarantee we will fulfil our ambition to become a global power. Our approach to realize this vision needs more than just planning for economic growth. It requires a shift in attitudes.
In Making India Great, Aparna Pande examines the challenges we face in the areas of social, economic, military and foreign policy and strategy. She points to the dichotomy that lies at the heart of the nation: our belief in becoming a global power and the reluctance to implement policies and take actions that would help us achieve that goal.
The New India holds all the promise of greatness many of its citizens dream of. Can it become a reality? The book delves into this question.

PREPARING FOR A WORLD TRANSFORMED
To say that COVID-19 has changed the world is merely stating the obvious at this point.
Deep-seated trends in the world order have been accelerated by the pandemic. As the US's star-spangled banner fades, China's red-gold stars once seemed to be dawning over Asia - a hegemony now questioned by many. An unprecedented global reorganisation of capital, labour, and supply chains is in the making. And India needs to be ready.
India's Marathon is an anthology of fifteen essays from some of the world's brightest public intellectuals to help India understand what needs to be done - and answer some of the pressing questions that are sure to arise in the years to come. How can India manage its relationships with China and the US? How can it turn its enormous population into a driver of economic growth? How can it reform its taxation systems and institutions of governance to be prepared for unprecedented challenges? Most importantly, how can India shape the post-pandemic world to suit its interests while dealing with its own complicated problems?
India's Marathon has answers to all this - and more. Unlike most other books that aim to forecast the future, India's Marathon is unabashedly India-centric, written with Indian interests and ideas front and centre. This is an Indian vision of what the world will look like and what India needs to do, for the policy professional and lay reader alike.

Foreign policy of India is as deeply informed by its civilizational heritage as it is by modern ideas about national interest. The two concepts that come and go most frequently in Indian engagement with the world - from Chanakya in the third century bce to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2017 - are autonomy and independence in decision making. Aparna Pande's From Chanakya to Modi explores the deeper civilizational roots of Indian foreign policy in a manner reminiscent of Walter Russel Mead's seminal Special Providence (2001). It identifies the neural roots of India's engagement with the world outside.
Pakistan has over the decades become a hotbed for the terrorist ideology often referred to as Jihadism. This book investigates the underlying principles of Pakistan’s foreign policy from 1947 until the present day, and explains the rise of Jihadism as an offshoot of Pakistan’s security concerns.
The book goes on to discuss that from its inception as a separate state, Pakistan’s foreign policy focused on ‘seeking parity’ with India and ‘escaping’ from an Indian South Asian identity. The desire to achieve parity with its much larger neighbour led Pakistan to seek the assistance and support of allies. The author analyses the relationship Pakistan has with Afghanistan, United States, China and the Muslim world, and looks at how these relationships are based on the desire that military, economic and diplomatic aid from these countries would bolster Pakistan’s meagre resources in countering Indian economic and military strength. The book presents an interesting contribution to South Asian Studies, as well as studies on International Relations and Foreign Policy.
