About the Book:
One remarkable feature of India’s foreign policy since independence is its continuity and constancy. This feature is rooted in Nehru heritage that governments since Nehru era (1947-64) claimed to be adhering to. Although, since the Narasimha Rao government came to power in the middle of the 1991, there seems to be a tendency to depart from that heritage. Of course, no one can reasonably claim that Nehru heritage continues to be relevant in all respects in the changing international and domestic political-economic framework. India continues to maintain the rest of the package of the Nehru heritage—Non-alignment, maintenance of world peace and security, peaceful settlement of disputes, peaceful co-existence of the nations of the diverse ideologies and economic development of under-developed countries with international assistance. Hence, we can see a continuity and constancy in India’s foreign policy.
