Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
The editors delve into a sometimes tangled history of Indo-US relationships, commencing shortly after India got independence in 1948. During the Cold War, India aspired to lead a Third World movement that was separate from both superpowers. Though powerful socialist elements favoured a slightly closer association with the Soviet Union. But as the Cold War ended with the dissolution of the Soviets, this was strongly discredited inside India.

We see since then a much warmer interaction between India and the US. Enhanced by the so-called US War on Terror. India was one of the first countries to offer military assistance during the US invasion of Afghanistan. After which, cooperation greatly increased. With the unpleasantries of the Indian nuclear tests in 1997 being deprecated.

The book also relates how counterterrorism cooperation has been strengthened. India has more or less successfully persuaded the Bush administration that its conflict in Kashmir has some of the same enemies of the US. It is also striving to separate the close association between the US and Pakistan.
