Description - The United States and India: A History Through Archives by Praveen K. Chaudhry
Declassified documents are a great vantage point for understanding global governance, current security concerns and the international market. The introduction to the book provides a comprehensive view of world politics. The documents cover not only US-India bilateral relations during the formative years, but US relations with colonial powers as well. The text, as a whole, provides the context of current international relations. These documents were collected from the Presidential Libraries - FDR to Carter, White House Papers, National Security Council, Office of Strategic Services, Central Intelligence Agency, selections from Foreign Relations (Department's Diplomatic Papers, US Agency for International Development, Divisional Reports of the Department of State, and cables from several US embassies. The documents cover seven topics chronologically: US Foreign Policy; US and UK relations; US and USSR in the near and far-East; Nehru; India's Foreign Policy, India & Pakistan; and, Aid. The book provides its reader an in-depth documentation of the history of US/India relations based on archival declassified material sourced from the United States.
The volume is the first in a series to provide declassified documents spanning the Franklin Roosevelt - Carter years. Other volumes in the series will explore Indo-China relations; Indo-Pak conflicts of 1965 and 1971; Kashmir; Nuclear Proliferation, and the Soviet and Chinese influence on Indo-US relations as well.
