Joseph, M., & Jacob, H. (Eds.). (2014). India’s Economic Growth: Opportunities and Challenges for the Region. New Delhi: Manohar & Distributors.
Since adopting liberal economic policies, India has become one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Despite the fact India has been reaching out to various regions such as Southeast Asia and Middle East for expansion and strengthening its linkages, its relations with its immediate South Asian neighbors remain problematic. This volume comprises eight chapters, each representing the views from a South Asian country on the opportunities and challenges that India’s economic growth has for the country and the region itself. Each country chapter focuses on four questions pertaining to bilateral relations between the country concerned and India; balancing its relations between India and China; support and opportunities for regional cooperation in South Asia; and local factors that influence its foreign policy in this regard.
