International Relations in South Asia

International Relations in South Asia
Search for an Alternative Paradigm

First Edition

September 2008 | 352 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
This collection explores 'state of the art' methods to understand International Relations in South Asia, from disciplinary, pedagogic and epistemological standpoints. It probes alternative methods to comprehend international politics in the region: through constructivism, critical theories, post-colonial traditions of thought and feminist approaches.

International Relations in South Asia: Search for an Alternative Paradigm offers perspectives from various Asian countries like Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and India and captures contemporary thinking with articles that are being published for the first time. It is a compelling read for researchers and academicians working in the fields of Political Science, International Relations, Strategic/Security Studies and South Asian Studies.

The Tribune

This book probes alternative methods to comprehend international relations in the region through critical theories, post-colonial traditions of thought and feminist approaches.

Sunday Pioneer

[This book] is one such intellectual endeavour by a devoted group of IR scholars in search of new paradigm and, as such it is most welcome…The book is full of a variety of new approaches with potential for theory building…I commend the book to all the aspiring and established researchers and teachers of IR all over the world, especially in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The book is a must for all research libraries and think tanks in India and in the West.
