The Indian Ocean Politics

Ajit Raizada (Author)
Synopsis What is Indian Ocean? It is the third largest ‘inverted W-shaped’ ocean in the world, bifurcated by the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. Comprising an area of 7,49,17,000 square kilometers, it has 47 hinterland and littoral states and touches many continents. Navigation in the Indian Ocean is supposed to have started as early as 2300 B.C. It provides round the year navigation due to its tropical location and has enormous marine wealth. More than two-thirds of the world’s oil reserves literally make its waters boll with the heat of international geopolitics. In this fascinating study the author has not only discussed the different paradigms prevalent in the study of International Affairs, but has also surveyed the literature available on the subject of the Indian Ocean Politics. An in-depth study of the Super Power, rivalry, the Indian interest in the Indian Ocean and the International efforts to convert it into a Zone of Peace makes this book a welcome and a valuable addition to the subject.
