Recent nuclear tests in India and Pakistan make it clear that the US can no longer continue a policy of "benign neglect" toward India. This book engages the key issues for nonproliferation and foreign policy that affect Indo-American relations. It addresses under-explored areas such as missile control and space cooperation, chemical and biological weapons, and the use of sanctions versus incentives. This book goes beyond historical analysis to offer practical recommendations for policymakers in both countries.

"Blending history with analysis of current affairs and future dilemmas, these essays provide a clear picture of the perceptual, political, legislative and bureaucratic hurdles that the U.S. and India must negotiate if they are to build a relationship befitting the world's largest democracies." -George Perkovich, Director, Secure World Program, W. Alton Jones Foundation and author of "India's Nuclear Bomb ""Engaging India is indeed a timely and significant volume, which puts together a wide array of scholarship and analysis on several crucial aspects of the relationship between India and the United States. It is important that a book on this subject be an intelligent appreciation of facts, various views and differing standpoints. "Engaging India does this expertly and is a creditable achievement." -Naresh Chandra, Ambassador of India to the United States "In "Engaging India, a well-informed group of authors provide broad insight into India'srelations with the rest of the world in the shadow of India's 1998 nuclear tests. This book should be read by anyone who wants to understand how these relations developed and where they are headed." -Clifford E. Singer, Director, Program in Arms Control, Disarmament, and International Security, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
