India in South Asia synopsis

South Asia is one of the most volatile regions in the world, and India's complex democratic political system affects its relations with its South Asian neighbors. Focusing on this relationship, this book explores the extent to which domestic politics influence a country's foreign policy. The book argues that the special processes of continuity and detachment in Indian foreign policy are related to the way in which Indian elites have expressed Indian identity in response to domestic political needs.

The way state elites envision this regional and regional role of India depends on its need to stay in tune with local identity politics. Such imperatives have important implications for Indian foreign policy in South Asia. Analyzing India's foreign policy through the lens of competing domestic visions in three different historical eras in India's independent history, the book provides a framework for the study of the developing nation of India on the basis of the idea (s) of 'India'. This approach allows for a deeper and more accurate interpretation of the drivers of India's foreign policy choices from the traditional realist or neoliberal framework, and provides a useful contribution to studies, politics, and international studies in South Asia..
