This work explores the strategic, political and economic dynamics of India-US relations by examining the qualitative changes that have taken place in recent years. While a realistic appraisal of the strategic necessities of our times may have been the prime motivator behind the recent upsurge in India- US relations, often ignored are the other equally important determinants that are helping to strengthen relations between India and the United States.
The focus of this study is on these determinants: economic stakeholders, interest and lobbying group, thing tanks and the American community of Indian origin. This work profiles these stakeholders, makes an appraisal of their interests and assesses their role in moving India-US relations in to a higher gear.
The monograph also explores the nature and structure of the US political system to understand the decision-making process that encourages the rise of lobbying and interest group politics in the US. This study would be a considerable interest to policy-makers, corporate houses and other interested in strengthening of India-US relations.
‘Harinder Sekhon’s effort is commendable and so is the quality of research. The monograph is richly annotated and many relevant extracts have been appropriately cited. Moreover, the contributions made by Americans of Indian origin have been rightly appreciated”.
