As India emerges as a significant global actor, diverse
states have sought to engage India with divergent
agendas and interests. Some states aspire to improve
their relations with New Delhi, while others pursue the
transformation of Indian foreign policy - and even India
itself - to suit their interests. The Engagement of India
explores the strategies that key states have employed
to engage and shape the relationship with a rising and
newly vibrant India, their successes and failures, and
Indian responses - positive, ambivalent, and
sometimes hostile - to engagement. A multinational
team of contributors examine the ways in which
Australia, China, Japan, Russia, and the United States
have each sought to engage India for various
purposes, explore the ways in which India has
responded, and assess India's own strategies to
engage with Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the
Central Asian republics
