India's war : World War II and the making of modern South Asia by Srinath Raghavan( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1939 and 1945 India underwent extraordinary and irreversible change. Hundreds of thousands of Indians suddenly found themselves in uniform, fighting in the Middle East, North and East Africa, Europe, and against a Japanese army poised to invade eastern India. In India's War, historian Srinath Raghavan paints a compelling picture of battles abroad and life on the home front, arguing that the war is crucial to understanding how and why colonial rule ended in South Asia, "--NoveList
Fierce enigmas : a history of the United States in South Asia by Srinath Raghavan( Book )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"South Asia looms large in American foreign policy. Over the past two decades, we have spent billions of dollars and thousands of human lives in the region, to seemingly little effect. As Srinath Raghavan reveals in Fierce Enigmas, this should not surprise us. For 230 years, America's engagement with India, Afghanistan, and Pakistan has been characterized by short-term thinking and unintended consequences. Beginning with American traders in India in the eighteenth century, the region has become a locus for American efforts-secular and religious-to remake the world in its image"--

The Oxford handbook of Indian foreign policy( Book )

17 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the end of the Cold War, the economic reforms in the early 1990s, and ensuing impressive growth rates, India has emerged as a leading voice in global affairs, particularly on international economic issues. Its domestic market is fast-growing and India is becoming increasingly important to global geo-strategic calculations, at a time when it has been outperforming many other growing economies, and is the only Asian country with the heft to counterbalance China. Indeed, so much is India defined internationally by its economic performance (and challenges) that other dimensions of its internal situation, notably relevant to security, and of its foreign policy have been relatively neglected in the existing literature. This handbook presents an innovative, high profile volume, providing an authoritative and accessible examination and critique of Indian foreign policy. The handbook brings together essays from a global team of leading experts in the field to provide a comprehensive study of the various dimensions of Indian foreign policy
India's war : the making of modern South Asia, 1939-1945 by Srinath Raghavan( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A welcome addition to his previous volumes on South Asia, in particular on Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister, in War and Peace in Modern India (Palgrave Macmillan, 2010), and the struggle on the creation of Bangladesh and subcontinental historiography in 1971: A Global History of the Creation of Bangladesh (Harvard University Press, 2013). This book has captured the fundamental elements of India under British colonial rule, and the extraordinary changes that occurred during the Second World War. With few strategic choices offered by the crumbling British Raj, India witnessed sudden fluctuations as millions of Indian soldiers fought in the deadliest conditions in Europe and North Africa against Axis forces, and in Hong Kong against the Japanese Army, which was determined to invade Eastern India. --

Makers of modern Asia by Jay Taylor( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Hardly more than a decade old, the twenty-first century has already been dubbed the Asian Century in recognition of China and India's increasing importance in world affairs. Yet discussions of Asia seem fixated on economic indicators--gross national product, per capita income, share of global trade. Makers of Modern Asia reorients our understanding of contemporary Asia by highlighting the political leaders, not billionaire businessmen, who helped launch the Asian Century. The nationalists who crafted modern Asia were as much thinkers as activists, men and women who theorized and organized anticolonial movements, strategized and directed military campaigns, and designed and implemented political systems. The eleven thinker-politicians whose portraits are presented here were a mix of communists, capitalists, liberals, authoritarians, and proto-theocrats--a group as diverse as the countries they represent

Military technological innovation in India: A tale of three projects( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT: This paper examines Indian strategy through the lens of military innovation. Comparing three major indigenous defense projects undertaken within a decade of each other, it asks why the Indian defense establishment managed to deliver on the Naval project while those of the Army and the Air Force were delayed by decades. To explain these differing outcomes, the paper argues, we need to analyze three inter-related issues: institutional capacity within the services; innovation strategy; and project management structures and accountability
