How India Sees American Power in Asia

Continued Primacy, Diminished Will: Indian Assessments of U.S. Power | Center for Strategic and International Studies.

The great challenge in India’s foreign policy is trying to figure out what role the U.S. wants to play – and what it can play, in the Asian security environment. The U.S. and India have grown closer in the wake of the Cold War, but the relationship is far from an aliance.

Terisita Schaffer at CSIS does a superb job examining how India’s views of the U.S. have changed, how the Indians do not see the United States as a power in decline, and how the growing relationship between America and the Subcontinental power is changing the calculus in the regions’s international security.

If you read or plan to read Robert Kaplan‘s excellent Monsoon, this is a superb introduction or companion piece.
