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.
