“This book is essential to understanding the present state of U.S.-India relations and the prospects for the future. It is well organized, comprehensive, balanced, thoughtful, and full of  the kind of insight that not only makes for good reading but even better understanding.”

Ambassador Schaffer examines the astonishing new strategic partnership between the United States and India, the two countries’ success in forging bilateral relations and their relatively skimpy record of seeking common ground on global issues despite the vibrant new network of bilateral ties. In her new book Ambassador Schaffer proposes a policy of inclusion and candor, with the United States taking the relationship global and regional by helping to move India into global councils of leadership.
