Pax Indica: India and the World of the Twenty-First Century (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 679

Pax Indica: India And The World In The 21st Century examines India’s record in international relations and proposes what needs to be done to formulate a constructive foreign policy for the 21st century.

Summary Of The Book

Written by a man who has been a prominent figure in the international political arena for years, this book examines India’s record in diplomatic relations, the functioning of its foreign service, and the future trends and directions.

Pax Indica: India And The World In The 21st Century looks at India’s relationship with its neighbours and with the larger world outside its immediate neighbourhood thoroughly. The book is divided into eleven chapters and begins with a chapter on Pakistan and India’s troubled relationship with this volatile neighbour. It also discusses the country’s relationship with another emerging Asian power, China.

The book also examines Afghanistan and its potential to emerge as a trade hub connecting South and Central Asia. It slowly moves outward from the subcontinent to other counties and India’s need to formulate a constructive foreign policy that would enable it to open up channels for economic growth.

Pax Indica: India And The World In The 21st Century also critically examines the Indian Foreign Service, the lack of planning and structure in the diplomatic corps and the many problems that still persist despite India’s progress in other arenas. The book argues for a reexamination of the IFS, and discusses the problem of understaffing of the Indian Diplomatic Corps.

The author explains the need for India to now move away from non-alignment to a new paradigm of multi-alignment for constructive international relations in these changing times. He stresses the importance of formulating foreign policy strategies that also take into account long term goals. He says the focus of diplomatic relations should be to eventually convert good relations into opportunities for trade, tourism and investment.

Good and Bold account but incomplete

The 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.
Throughout the book, you get a very strong vibe that the book is being written by a sitting parliamentarian from the Congress party.

Who says Foreign Policy is boring??? A real delight for Foreign Policy enthusiasts

From 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

A straight from the heart, logical and blunt book

A 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

This is a book which analyses our Foreign policy challenges threadbare in a very easy-to-read format. The language is simple, the content deceptively simple while being comprehensive. It hits you in the gut whe

Nice Book albeit Loosely written at few places

Who 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.

However I wont recommend it for a fresher student of International relations. Its loosely written

These books are e-books just for the name sake... and having an e-pub .. format,... It may look like getting an item... but trust me you can have almost the same at google books and that also without any cost. :)
I love reading e-books but will never suggest you going through these.
These are incompatible and totally waste of time talking about these.
What kind of analysis you will make if you can't even get the compilation of you
