    Description
    In this lively, informative and insightful book, Shashi Tharoor brilliantly demonstrates how Indian diplomacy has come of age and forecasts where it will need to focus in the new millennium. He surveys Indias major international relationships in detail, evokes the countrys soft power and offers his thoughts on a new grand strategy for the nation, arguing that India must move beyond non-alignment to multi-alignment. Stimulating, reflective, elegantly written and passionately engaged, Pax Indica is another substantial achievement from one of the finest Indian authors of our times.

    About the Author
    An elected Member of Parliament, former minister of state for external affairs and former under-secretary-general of the United Nations, Shashi Tharoor is the prize-winning author of twelve previous books, both fiction and non-fiction. A widely published critic, commentator and columnist, he served the United Nations during a twenty-nine-year career in refugee work and peacekeeping, at the Secretary-Generals office and heading communications and public information. In 2006 he was Indias candidate to succeed Kofi Annan as UN Secretary-General, and emerged a strong second out of seven contenders. He has won Indias highest honour for overseas Indians, the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman, and numerous literary awards, including a Commonwealth Writers Prize.

    Journey through India's fiscal as well as foreign relations.

    The book is fascinating and one cannot think to put it down, once started. Shashi Tharror takes us on an arduous journey, comprehensively explaining each theme. The book is exceptional in its own way, and that's not a surprise as the writer is no one else than under secretary-general of United Nations. Hats off to Mr. Tharoor !

    Review

    The policy making is beyond our under standing and that is one reason why we crib about so many things that the nation does. This book is an insightful account into the compulsions behind policy making, the challenges faced by policy makers.

    An abridgment of India's Foriegn ploicy

    Excellent....simply we can rate this book with this word.. Tharoor explains our relations with different countries chapter via chapter with his experience as UN under secretary general and India's foreign minister. This will be an insight to india's foreign policy and how this plays an important part in framing our domestic policy.
    A must read for all to have an insight towards our trade and bilateral relations......

    Its not a book on foreign policy

    i was looking for a book on foreign policy. its a nice book but it does not help when you want to know about policy making. its just an opinion book by an ex-diplomat. but its filled with knowledge, information and interpretations.
