The United States and India: A History Through Archives
The Later Years: Volume 2

First Edition


January 2011 | 544 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
Declassified documents arguably offer a premier vantage for understanding global governance, current security concerns, and the international market. While the first volume dealt with India—US bilateral relations during the 'Formative Years', this two-part volume focuses on the 'Later Years': the Lyndon B Johnson—Richard M Nixon years (1965–1972), a time when cold war politics had set in, and cold war alliances were evolving in both blocs.

These selected documents are collected from the Presidential Libraries (Roosevelt–Carter), White House Papers, National Security Council, Office of Strategic Services, Central Intelligence Agency, and Foreign Relations archives.

The two books examine the following topics chronologically: American Interests Abroad; US Foreign Economic Assistance in the Developing World: Market, Military, Geopolitics and Food; India's foreign policy; bilateral relations with the Soviet Union; bilateral relations with China and the 1962 war; bilateral relations with Pakistan and the 1965 war; US military aid; and India's Nuclear Program. This volume comprises seven chapters chart the course of Washington's increasing involvement in South Asia.
