Jacob, H. (Ed.). (2014). Does India Think Strategically?: Institutions, Strategic Culture and Security Policies. New Delhi: Manohar & Distributors.

This book addresses two major questions: Whether India has a strategic culture which informs the country’s foreign, defense and security thinking and whether India’s foreign policy and security policies are based on a coherent strategic thinking. In other words, it explores India’s strategic culture, which shapes the country’s strategic thought. From theories of grand strategy to critical constructivist interpretations, a whole range of approaches to this question are included.
