Foreign Policies of India's Prime Ministers
This book is about the prime ministers of India since Jawaharlal Nehru. A chapter is devoted to each of them with a focus on their foreign policies. The broad organizational framework, designed and deployed in this publication, begins with a brief analysis of their formative years, their perceptions of the international system, and the architecture of their foreign policies, before delving into their decisional process, and concluding with an evaluation of their role. All the prime ministers were obviously not interested in international affairs, but the size of the country unavoidably pushed all of them to deal with foreign affairs, and their roles were varied and their performance was unequal. The uniqueness of the book lies in the fact that the author has dealt with all the prime ministers, including the ones for whom foreign policy was not crucial.
