In recent years, South Asia has become a flashpoint of conflict between the nuclear powers of India and Pakistan over the interconnected problem of Kashmir and cross-border terrorism. B.M. Jain here re-evaluates India's security, strategic and nuclear policy in the new South Asia of the post 9/11 era. He also provides a reappraisal of the regional security implications of India's turbulent relationships with Pakistan, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Furthermore, he examines the strategic engagement of America, Russia and China with South Asian states. This book will be invaluable for public policy-makers, researchers, and undergraduate and graduate students of South Asian studies.

Author Info

Jain was formerly Professor and Senior Research Scientist in Political Science at South Asia Studies Centre, University of Rajasthan in India; Visiting Professor in Asian and Asian American Studies at State University of New York, Binghamton, NY and Visiting Professor, The UNESCO Chair of Philosophy for Peace, Jaume 1 University at Castellon, Spain.


B.M. Jain has written the definitive book on India's emergence and its implications for the Asian region and beyond. Jain, a distinguished and astute observer of India's foreign policy and domestic politics provides an objective, informative, concise and persuasive look at the new India, as well as compellingly outlines the challenges and opportunities it faces. Both students and scholars of India and Asia will find this deeply informed book to be an invaluable resource.

It is now clear that economic, political and social power is gradually relocating from the West to the new growth poles of China and India. For anyone interested in understanding the challenges and opportunities that this represents, B.M. Jain's new book India in the New South Asia is indispensable reading. He forensically examines the global dynamics generating new regimes in South Asia, and new concepts and fresh paradigms of South Asian regionalism. Although pessimistic about the prospects for deeper regional integration in South Asia, he lays out a road map that will make that integration more likely. This is a book that needs to be read by academic and policy maker alike.
– Professor Kevin Clements, Foundation Chair of Peace and Conflict Studies and Director of the New Zealand Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Otago, New Zealand
