This well-edited volume of solid essays by American specialists on India fills an important gap. It is the first reliable account of U.S.-Indian relations since World War II. The essays are of uniformly high caliber; moreover, they come at an important moment when-as a result of the end of the Cold War and the new liberal economic policies of the Indian government-there are real prospects for a fundamental improvement in U.S.-Indian relations. There is a particularly thoughtful introduction by the editors.
