overview - Pax Indica: India and the World of the Twenty-First Cen...
"Indian diplomacy," a veteran told Shashi Tharoor many years ago, "is like the love-making of an elephant: it is conducted at a very high level, accompanied by much bellowing, and the results are not known for two years." In this lively, informative and insightful work, the award-winning author and parliamentarian brilliantly demonstrates how Indian diplomacy has become sprightlier since then and where it needs to focus in the world of the 21st century. Explaining why foreign policy matters to an India focused on its own domestic transformation, Tharoor surveys India's major international relationships in detail, evokes the country's soft power and its global responsibilities, analyses the workings of the Ministry of External Affairs, parliament and public opinion on the shaping of policy, and offers his thoughts on a contemporary new "grand strategy" for the nation, arguing that India must move beyond non-alignment to "multi-alignment." His book offers a clear-eyed vision of an India now ready to assume new global responsibility in the contemporary world. "Pax Indica "is another substantial achievement from one of the finest Indian authors of our times.
About the Author
Shashi Tharoor is the prize-winning author of ten works of fiction and non-fiction and a widely published critic, commentator and columnist (for The Hindu, Times of India and Newsweek, among others). In 2007 he concluded a nearly twenty-nine-year career at the United Nations, during which he worked for refugees in South-east Asia at the peak of the boat people crisis and handled peace-keeping operations in the former Yugoslavia. Latterly, Tharoor occupied the role of Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information and in 2006 he was nominated as India's candidate for UN Secretary-General, emerging as strong second out of seven contenders. Tharoor earned his PhD at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at the age of twenty-two and was named 'Global Leader of Tomorrow' at the World Economic Forum in Davos in 1998. He was awarded the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman, India's highest honour for Indians living overseas. Shashi Tharoor's website is www.shashitharoor.com
