About The Book :

India has emerged as a confident and engaging partner in international arena, metamorphosing from the image of a reluctant power in the late 20th century, reflecting a realization by its polity of the potential and benefits of such engagements in India's larger interests. While tons of literature delve on India's relations with the west, far and near, scholarly studies relating to the Far East or Greater Central Asia, however remain limited. This book attempts bridge this gap. Drawing on broad range of schools of thoughts and a number of different approaches, it presents the learned views of scholars applying a variety of methodological techniques. While keeping Mongolia at the centre of interest, the scholarly approaches look at India's Look East and Look North Policies, Mongolia's relations with Russia, the Third Neighbour Dilemma, USA-Mongolia relations, and India-Tajik relations, including the play of soft power in international relations.
