Hall offers a lucid account of Indian foreign policy since 2014, when Narendra Modi became prime minister. Modi promised a foreign policy revolution, has gathered decision-making power to himself, and has traveled abroad more often than his predecessors. He has articulated a Hindu nationalist philosophy, promoting India as a “world guru” that can solve global problems with its civilizational wisdom of “happiness, peace, and harmony.” He has sought more foreign investment but still protected Indian manufacturers from foreign imports. And he has adopted a muscular security stance, building up naval and missile forces and responding forcefully to provocations from Pakistan. Identifying China as India’s main rival, Modi has tightened India’s strategic partnerships with other countries worried about China and sponsored infrastructure projects to prevent India’s South Asian neighbors from falling totally under Beijing’s economic influence. Hall acknowledges that Modi has brought his characteristic energy to promoting India as a major power but judges that the results have shown more continuity than change. India remains more protectionist than globalist, distrusted by its neighbors, and wary of aligning too clearly with other powers against China.
