India’s Eastward Engagement: From Antiquity to Act East Policy

S.D. Muni (Author) Rahul Mishra (Author)

India’s Eastward Engagement: From Antiquity to Act East Policy presents India’s engagement with its extended eastern neighbours from ancient times to the present. It argues that this engagement has been long rooted in India’s geographical location, its civilizational evolution and historical transformations. The book critically examines all the important phases—Nehru and Post-Nehru periods, and Look East and Act East policies. It exposes the widely entertained myths about India’s eastward engagement and also underlines the prospective directions in which the Act East Policy may unfold in the years to come.
