Good and Bold account but incompleteThe book presents a very good account of India’s International Affairs. I have loved Mr. Tharoos’s columns from The Hindu OP-ED pages during my Delhi University days and have followed him since then whenever I got an opportunity. His analysis of India’s Bilateral relation in particular used to be very precise and brought issues into notice that were not always so visible. However, contrary to my expectations, this book does not quite live up to the expectation.

Who says Foreign Policy is boring??? A real delight for Foreign Policy enthusiastsFrom the cover of the book till the end it is an extremely interesting read. This is by far the best book I've read on Foreign Policy till date. The book is fast moving contrary to the popular belief that Foreign Policy can be boring. Shashi Tharoor sure justifies his ability as a writer as well as one of the most competent people to write on such an important area. It gives an in depth understanding of Foreign Policy and how important it is for any nation especially for an emerging power like India and how it can benefit the nation and its citizens at large. The chapter wise coverage giving a… (Expand)

Not perfectly neutralShashi Tharoor presents to us a new entry into already existing massive literature on India's foriegn policy. personally i think he is amongst the certain few of indian politics who is deeply into reading and writing which in the earlier era was considered something inevitable for political leaders. the book presents his own account working as under secretary general at UNO and for short time as minister of state. also his experience when he was researcher and had to deal with foreign ministry mandarins.

A straight from the heart, logical and blunt bookA book that challenges long-held assumptions, enables an in-depth understanding of our various neighbours and our response to them; Witty in parts - which makes for fun reading; blunt in its honesty as regards acknowledging Indian mistakes, equally blunt and straight in praising India's good points... and brutally blunt in response to western misconceptions and dual standards on India

India's True Foreign Policy GospelAn insightful inside scoop with historical anecdotes and game swinging current events that will shape India's foreign policy role in the future with all round relations from South Asia to the West and it's position in United Nations,strong emphasis on multi alignment and soft power. Pax Indica also highlights India's list of accomplishments while laying down a template on what it needs to accomplish and what it has the capability to.Shashi Tharoor scores a game winning touchdown, given his colossal United Nations and MEA credentials, in terms of scanning the positives and negatives of foreign … (Expand)

Nice Book albeit Loosely written at few placesWho can write on Indian Foreign Policy better than Shashi Tharoor. The book has immense fresh ideas like 'Multi-Alginment' a befitting and better policy option than 'Non-Alignment 2.0"; converting 'Big Brother syndrome' to elder brother syndrome. The chapters on Soft power and on Africa and Latin America were missing in most books and were desperately required by Readers. The note on the ministry of External(in Throor's lexicom 'Eternal') Affairs is worth read with lot of insider and real info.

generally speakingA very general Indian affairs book , Im sure Shashi would have penned it down in a week or so , drifting through the backwaters of kerela, the book provides nothing intresting or new , might be informative for people who know nothing abt the Indian setup . For people who have been reading , Ramchandra Guha , Nandan Nilekani and Dalrymple the book turns out to be a big bore . Avoided the better is my take on it .

Pax Indica- Masterpiece!To understand India's changing foreign policy in the contemporary world and the future challenges faced by it, this book provides a wonderful insight into the subject. A riveting read for one interested in diplomacy. Shashi Tharoor comes up with yet another masterpiece!

Overratedi think this book is written in a style which is like writing a civil services answer but it should have been more engaging !
