India has the world’s fourth largest military and one of the biggest defence budgets. It asserts its political and military profile in South Asia and the Indian Ocean region. The nation has been in the midst of an ambitious plan to modernize its largely Soviet-era arms since the late 1990s and has spent billions of dollars on latest high-tech military technology.

This handbook:

  • canvasses over 60 years of Indian defence policy and the major debates that have shaped it;
  • discusses several key themes such as the origins of the modern armed forces in India; military doctrine and policy; internal and external challenges; and nuclearization and its consequences;
  • includes contributions by well-known scholars, experts in the field and policymakers; and
  • provides an annotated bibliography for further research.

Presented in an accessible format, this lucidly written handbook will be an indispensable resource for scholars and researchers of security and defence studies, international relations and political science, as well as for government think tanks and policymakers.

About the Author:

Harsh V. Pant is Professor of International Relations in the Defence Studies Department and the India Institute at King’s College, London. He is Non-Resident Fellow with the Wadhwani Chair in US–India Policy Studies at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Washington, DC. His current research is focused on Asian security issues. His recent books include India’s Afghan Muddle (2014), The Rise of the Indian Navy: Internal Vulnerabilities, External Challenges (2012), and The Rise of China: Implications for India (2012). Pant writes regularly for various media outlets, including The Japan Times, The Wall Street Journal, The National (UAE), and The Telegraph.

Review:

When talking about Indian defense policy a former army chief famously talked about the "arrogance of ignorance". In twenty-five important chapters Indian and foreign contributors address the "ignorance" side of this quip, dissecting relevant parts of Indian military history, the frozen defense bureaucracy, and the tough problem of identifying and responding to threats. The book rightly raises questions about how India arms and defends itself, and more importantly, how it prioritizes security problems. It is a must-have reference book for anyone interested in the future of one of the world’s major powers. -- Stephen P. Cohen, Senior Fellow, The Brookings Institution, Washington, DC
