Synopsis

The United States and India: A History Through Archives The Formative Years by Praveen K. Chaudhry, Marta Vanduzer-Snow

Declassified documents are arguably the premier vantage for understanding global governance, current security concerns and the international market. This book`s introduction provides a comprehensive review of world politics, defining the US and India as actors at this critical juncture. The documents cover not only US-India bilateral relations during the formative years, but also US relations with colonial powers and its role in global governance. Documents include papers from the Presidential Libraries-FDR to Carter, the White House, National Security Council, Office of Strategic Services, Central Intelligence Agency, and selections from Foreign Relations Department`s Diplomatic Papers, reports of US Agency for International Development, Divisional Reports from the Department of State, and cables from several US embassies. The first volume explores the following topics: US Foreign Policy, US & UK relations, US & USSR in the near and Far East, Nehru, India`s Foreign Policy, India and Pakistan, and Aid. The volume is the first in a series to provide declassified documents spanning the Franklin D Roosevelt-Carter years. Other volumes in the series will examine India-China relations, India-Pakistan conflicts of 1965 and 1971, Kashmir, Nuclear Proliferation, and the Soviet and Chinese influence on India-US relations as well.
