ABOUT THE BOOK

Indian and American Foreign Policies: From Confrontation to Cooperation is a collection of 63 thought provoking articles which were penned by the author and editor during his active participation in teaching P.G. students with whom 17 students also completed their Ph.D dissertations, 3 students completed their M. Phil dissertations and a senior Consul from Iraqi Consulate, successfully completed his MA by research.

This has provided the author in depth understanding of India’s initial period of non-aligned policy, how policies on nation’s foreign affairs and national security are formulated. As he was the first one in India to have studied American National Security Council for his Ph.D dissertation which was completed at Johns Hopkins University, School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington DC as a Fulbright Scholar, his work in the SAIS was so highly appreciated by his academic Adviser Fred Holborn who admired his work in his report to Fulbright Commission in the following wards: “Mr Kamath had prodigious energy, great scholarly ambition and clear capacity to absorb knowledge. In both his research and classroom and informal association he shows a very sophisticated and broad understanding of the subjects, and materials with which he is working…”

His specialisation in American foreign policy has not only helped him study comparatively foreign policy process, but fully capitalise a hidden value loaded in the study of American foreign policy. Anyone who specialises in American foreign policy perforce acquires a global vision: The US has relations with A (Austria) to Z (Zambia) nations. That enlarged vision of Kamath as an international scholar. That enabled him to study Indian foreign policy too in its widest perspective. That is brought out in chapters like Indian relations with neighbours and China as not only as an assertive neighbour but also need for India to be a geopolitically effective player to match China’s designs.

The book should be a compulsory reading to all students interested in foreign policies, diplomats and young political aspirants competing for leadership roles.
