1. Indian Diplomacy: beyond strategic autonomy / Abhyankar, Rajendra M. - New Delhi: Oxford University Press, 2018
Abstract: How has India’s foreign policy evolved in the seventy years since Independence? For that matter, what is the country’s foreign policy? And what are the aspects that determine and shape it? If you’ve had questions such as these, Rajendra Abhyankar’s Indian Diplomacy is the foreign policy primer you’ve been looking for. Charting the country’s interactions with other countries from the early days of independence to now, Indian Diplomacy reviews the changes in stance. Lucidly written and well argued, the book covers these and other questions comprehensively, without fuss or bombast. A much-needed book in light of the sweeping changes on the global stage and India’s increasing role in them.
2. India's foreign policy discourse and its conceptions of World order: the quest for power and identity / Wojczewski, Thorsten - London: Routledge, 2018

Abstract: This book offers the first systematic investigation of the world order models in India’s foreign policy discourse. By examining how the signifier ‘world order’ is endowed with meaning in the discourse, it moves beyond Western-centric IR and sheds light on how a state located outside the Western ‘core’ conceptualizes world order. Drawing on poststructuralism and discourse theory, the book proposes a novel analytical framework for studying foreign policy discourses and understanding the changes and continuities in India’s post-cold war foreign policy. It shows that foreign policy and world order have been crucial sites for the (re)production of India’s identity by drawing a political frontier between the Self and a set of Others and placing India into a system of differences that constitutes ‘what India is’.
3. In search of Israel: the history of an India / Brenner, Michael - Princeton: Princetion University Press, 2018
Abstract: Many Zionists who advocated the creation of a Jewish state envisioned a nation like any other. Yet for Israel's founders, the state that emerged against all odds in 1948 was anything but ordinary. Born from the ashes of genocide and a long history of suffering, Israel was conceived to be unique, a model society and the heart of a prosperous new Middle East. It is this paradox, says historian Michael Brenner--the Jewish people's wish for a homeland both normal and exceptional?that shapes Israel's ongoing struggle to define itself and secure a place among nations. In Search of Israel is a major new history of this struggle from the late nineteenth century to our time.
4. The Implementation of the Paris agreement on climate change / Popovski, Vesselin Ed. - London: Routledge, 2018
Abstract: This book focuses on the implementation prospects of the Agreement, which is a challenge for all and will require a fully comprehensive burden- sharing framework. Parties need to meet their own NDCs, but also to finance and transfer technology to others who do not have enough. How equity- based and facilitative the process will be, is of crucial importance. The volume examines s broad range of issues including the lessons that can be learnt from the implementation of previous environmental legal regimes, climate policies at national and sub-national levels and whether the implementation mechanisms in the Paris Agreement are likely to be sufficient.
5. Joining the non proliferation treaty: deterrence, non-proliferation and the American alliance / Baylis, John Ed. - Lodon: Routledge, 2018
Abstract: What were the calculations made by the US and its major allies in the 1960s when they faced the signing of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)? These were all states with the technological and financial capabilities to develop and possess nuclear weapons should they wish to do so. In the end, only the United Kingdom and France became nuclear weapon states. Eventually, all of them joined the non-proliferation regime.
6. Nuclear South Asia: keywords and concepts / Rajagopalan, Rajesh and Mishra, Atul - London: Routledge, 2018
Abstract: This dictionary provides a comprehensive and ready guide to the key concepts, issues, persons, and technologies related to the nuclear programmes of India and Pakistan and other South Asian states.

7. New directions in Africa-China studies / Alden, Chris Ed. and Large, Daniel - London: Routledge, 2019
Abstract: Interest in China and Africa is growing exponentially. Taking a step back from the 'events-driven' reactions characterizing much coverage, this timely book reflects more deeply on questions concerning how this subject has been, is being and can bestudied. It offers a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary and authoritative contribution to Africa?China studies. Its diverse chapters explore key current research themes and debates, such as agency, media, race, ivory, development or security, using a variety of case studies from Benin, Kenya and Tanzania, to Angola, Mozambique and Mauritius.

8. Palestine: a four thousand year history / Masalha, Nur - USA: Zed Books, 2018
Abstract: This rich and magisterial work traces Palestine’s millennia-old heritage, uncovering cultures and societies of astounding depth and complexity that stretch back to the very beginnings of recorded history. Starting with the earliest references in Egyptian and Assyrian texts, Nur Masalha explores how Palestine and its Palestinian identity have evolved over thousands of years, from the Bronze Age to the present day. Drawing on a rich body of sources and the latest archaeological evidence, Masalha shows how Palestine’s multicultural past has been distorted and mythologized by Biblical lore and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In the process, Masalha reveals that the concept of Palestine, contrary to accepted belief, is not a modern invention or one constructed in opposition to Israel, but rooted firmly in ancient past. Palestine represents the authoritative account of the country's history. 
9. Psychology of a superpower: security and dominance in U.S.Foreign policy / Fettweis, Christopher J. - New York: Columbia University Prees, 2018
Abstract: Combining security, strategy, and psychology, Fettweis investigates how the idea of being number one affects the decision making of America’s foreign-policy elite. He examines the role the United States plays in providing global common goods, such as peace and security; the effect of the Cold War’s end on nuclear-weapon strategy and policy; the psychological consequences of unbalanced power; and the grand strategies that have emerged in unipolarity. Drawing on psychology’s insights into the psychological and behavioral consequences of unchecked power, Fettweis brings new insight to political science’s policy-analysis toolkit. He also considers the prospect of the end of unipolarity, offering a challenge to widely held perceptions of American indispensability and asking whether the unipolar moment is worth trying to save. 
10. Searching for Boko Haram: a history of violence in Central Asia / MacEachern, Scott - USA: Oxford University Press, 2018
Abstract: Searching for Boko Haram is the first book to examine the insurgency within the context of centuries, millennia even, of cultural change in the region. The book surveys the deep history of the lands south of Lake Chad, richly documented in archaeology and texts, to show how ancient natural and cultural events can aid in our understanding of Boko Haram's present agenda. The land's historical narrative stretches back five centuries, with cultural origins that plunge even deeper into the past. One important feature of this past is the phenomenon of frontiers and borderlands. In striking ways, Boko Haram resembles the frontier slave raiders and warlords who figure in precolonial and colonial writings on the southern Lake Chad Basin. Presently, these accounts are paralleled by the activity of smugglers, bandits and tax evaders.
11. Secession in International law : a new framework / Sterio, Milena - UK: Edward Elgar, 2018
Abstract: Secession in International Law argues that the effective development of criteria on secession is a necessity in today’'s world, because secessionist struggles can be analyzed through the legal lens only if we have specific legal rules to apply. Without legal rules, secessionist struggles are dominated by politics and sui generis approaches, which validate secessionist attempts based on geo-politics and regional states’' self-interest, as opposed to the law. By using a truly comparative approach, Milena Sterio has developed a normative international law framework on secession, which focuses on several factors to assess the legitimacy of a separatist quest.
12. Think tanks, foreign policy and the emerging powers / McGann, James G. Ed. - Switzerland: Palgrave Macmiilan, 2019
Abstract: This book examines changing international dynamics through the lens of some of the leading think tanks from the emerging powers in the world. Through twelve case studies, the authors explore how security and international affairs think tanks in emerging powers collaborate with their policy makers to meet current and anticipate future foreign policy and security challenges. Overall, the book illustrates and analyzes how think tanks in a variety of political and economic contexts are able to contribute to their respective policy-making processes. Included in the discussions are the problems or successes that each respective nation’s think tanks face, where they feel the emerging nation will be positioned, and where they are failing to meet the policy challenges they face. The book provides a comprehensive look at successful foreign policy formulation to serve as examples for other think tanks in similar political and economic conditions.
13. US foreign policy towards China, Cuba and Iran: the politics of recognition / Ryan, Greg By Greg Ryan - London: Routledge, 2018
Abstract: It critically examines four core foundations of contemporary US Middle East policy: US relations with Saudi Arabia after the Arab Spring; US diplomacy towards Iran and the Obama administration’s policy of engagement; the road to, and aftermath of, the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq; and US policy towards nuclear-armed Israel. Because of a closely guarded bipartisan consensus, these four core foundations of contemporary US Middle East policy have largely evaded public criticism and scrutiny. This book argues that US strategy towards the Middle East has rarely been guided by order, stability and the national interest. Rather, successive administrations have created a house of cards built on a series of deceptions and constructed perceptions or myths. Combined, these four aspects of US Middle East policy have ushered in a decade of political violence, instability, sectarian divisions and an imbalance of power which has culminated in the territorial disintegration of Iraq and countries in the Levant as well as the rise of ISIS. Moving forward requires a rational pursuit of the national interest based on realist principles.
14. Weird IR: deviant cases in International relations / Mislan, David Bell By David Bell Mislan and Philip Streich - USA: Palgarve Macmillan, 2018
Abstract: ​The scholarly study of international relations tends to go over the same cases, issues, and themes. This book addresses this by challenging readers to think creatively about international politics. It highlights some of the strangest and rarest phenomena in diplomacy and world politics. Comprised of a series of vignettes and organized by common themes like nonsensical borders, quasi-countries, and diplomatic taboos, Weird IR encourages readers to think critically about the discipline without losing one's sense of humor completely.
15. Unravelling Europe's migration crisis / Crawley, Heaven - UK: Policy Press, 2018.
Abstract: This book draws on more than five hundred firsthand accounts to reveal the human story behind the statistics and demagoguery. What is it like to set out for Europe with your family, knowing the dangers you face on the way? Why are so many people willing to risk their lives crossing the Mediterranean? What are their hopes and fears? And why is Europe, one of the richest regions of the world, unable to cope? More than just telling a human story, Heaven Crawley and colleagues provide a framework for understanding the dynamics underpinning the current wave of migration and challenging politicians, policy makers, and the media to rethink their understanding of why and how people move.
16. Diplomatic protocol: etiquette, statecraft & trust / Rivett, Rosalie - UK: Whittles Publishing, 2018
Abstract: This book provides examples both modern and old, from taking up a post for the first time to departing a mission, where diplomatic protocol has been successful and where diplomacy has failed. Without a clear understanding of the practicalities of diplomatic protocol no aspiring ambassador can hope to succeed. With the benefit of first-hand international experience working with the diplomatic, political, military and business communities, the author offers a unique perspective on the challenges facing a troubled world and as a university lecturer, public and external examiner in diplomatic studies, she brings a current interpretation of a subject which is increasingly recognised as being essential in international affairs.
17. China's rise and Australia-Japan-US relations: primacy and leadership in East Asia / Heazle, Michael Ed. and O'Neil, Andrew Ed.? - UK: Edward Elgar, 2018
Abstract: China's Rise and Australia–-Japan–-US Relations discusses the strategic post-war presence of American leadership in Asia, and examines the influence on the region’s geopolitics. This book allows readers to understand how and why China is challenging this external engagement, and conversely why Australia and Japan want to maintain a commitment to US input; their perceptions of American leadership are critical indicators of the prospects for change in the region. This is a vital book for security and international relations scholars, researchers and experts, as it provides detailed analyses of current relations between countries in the Asia Pacific and the US, as well as giving a thorough look into what the future is likely to hold in terms of US commitment in the region.

Drawing on recognized experts from across Canada, this latest edition of the respected Canada Among Nations series will be essential reading for students of international relations and Canadian foreign policy and for a wider readership interested in Canada’s age of Trudeau.
19. China in the Indian ocean: one Ocean, many strategies / Rajesh, M.H. - New Delhi: Pentagon Press, 2018
Abstract: Chinas increasing footprints in the Indian Ocean have been a cynosure of the statesmens and scholars eyes.

20. Faith and resistance: the politics of love and war in Lebanon / Marusek, Sarah By Sarah Marusek - UK: Pluto Press, 2018?
Abstract: Exploring the rise of Shi’i activism in Lebanon and the broader Middle East, in Faith and ResistanceSarah Marusek offers a timely analysis of the social and political evolution of Islamic movements. These movements, she shows, have long existed in opposition to a number of different forces. And while that opposition has often been full of contradictions, the growing popularity of such movements has nonetheless led to increasing economic and political powers. Marusek shows here how resistance groups reconcile the acquisition of power with their larger anti-colonial aspirations.
21. Islam, securitization, and US foreign policy / Shipoli, Erdoan A. - Swizerland: Palggrave Macmillan, 2018
Abstract: This book argues that Islam has been securitized in US foreign policy, especially during the W. Bush administration when it was increasingly portrayed as the ultimate “other.” This securitization was realized through the association of Islam with unique security threats in speeches of foreign policy and national security. By analyzing the four recent US presidents’ discourses on Islam, this work sheds light on how they viewed Islam and addresses the following questions: How do we talk about Islam, its place and relationship within the context of US security? How does the language we use to describe Islam influence the way we imagine it? How is Islam constructed as a security issue?
22. China's foreign relations and security dimension / Kochhar, Geeta Ed. - London: Routledge, 2018
Abstract: China is the world’s second largest economy and a key player in world politics. This book looks at China’s foreign policy from a macro perspective. It analyses China’s peripheral and regional policy as well as its relations with other major powers ? India and Russia. It offers insight into the historical security concerns of China and the linkages of internal domestic issues with external diplomacy which reshape its relations with neighbouring countries. The volume also examines President Xi Jinping’s foreign policy orientations and aspirations for future. In face of growing global concern on China’s hegemonic ambitions in the region, the book gauges the tensions between China and Japan in the South China Sea as well as the apprehensions of several smaller Asian countries that may perceive China’s strategic and geo-economic advantages and military strength as a threat.
23. The Islamic state in Khorasan: Afghanistan, Pakistan and the New Central Asian Jihad / Giustozzi, Antonio - London: Hurst & Company, 2018
Abstract: So-called Islamic State began to appear in what it calls Khorasan (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Central Asia, Iran and India) in 2014. Reports of its presence were at first dismissed as propaganda, but during 2015 it became clear that IS had a serious presence in Afghanistan and Pakistan at least. This book, by one of the leading experts on Islamist insurgency in the region, explores the nature of IS in Khorasan, its aim and strategies, and its evolution in an environment already populated by many jihadist organisations. Based on first-hand research and numerous interviews with members of IS in Khorasan, as well as with other participants and observers, the book addresses highly contentious issues such as funding, IS's relationship with the region's authorities, and its interactions with other insurgent groups.
24. British rule in India / Sunderlal, Pandit - Los Angeles: Sage, 2018
Abstract: This second volume British Rule in India covers the period from 1805 (Second Maratha War), a turning point for the East India Company, to 1858, when the East India Company had to cede control to the British Crown. It details how the British acquired territories by sly and dishonourable treaties and how their rule led to extremely large-scale economic exploitation. It painstakingly traces the history of the deliberate destruction of Indian industry and the plundering that went on under the guise of development. Pandit Sunderlal was an eminent Gandhian and freedom fighter.
25. Empress Queen Victoria and India / Taylor, Miles - New Haven: Yale University Press, 2018
Abstract: An entirely original account of Victoria's relationship with the Raj, which shows how India was central to the Victorian monarchy from as early as 1837 In this engaging and controversial book, Miles Taylor shows how both Victoria and Albert were spellbound by India, and argues that the Queen was humanely, intelligently, and passionately involved with the country throughout her reign and not just in the last decades. Taylor also reveals the way in which Victoria's influence as empress contributed significantly to India's modernization, both political and economic. This is, in a number of respects, a fresh account of imperial rule in India, suggesting that it was one of Victoria's successes.
26. Sardar Patel unifier of modern India / Singh, RNP - New Delhi: Vitasta Publishing, 2018
Abstract: Vallabhbhai Patel (1875-1950) left his mark not only on the map of India but also on the minds of her people. He is said to have bequeathed the idea of an integrated India to the nation and is often called the ‘Iron Man’, with an uncanny foresight and a clear vision of where independent India’s future lay.
He was no superman, he was a statesman gifted with the rare quality of astuteness and pertinacity in his approach to problems. He was more than Bismarck in many ways. His decisive approach to the merger of the 565 princely States into the Union of India is a hair-raising story of grit, gumption and guts. It is the story of how a man, believed to be ‘the accurate bowman of Gandhi’s struggle?who knew no retreat’ wooed, cajoled and coerced Princes’ India into becoming a People’s India. 
27. Towards a ceasefire in Kashmir: British official reports from South Asia, 18th September-31 December 1948 / Carter, Lionel Ed.- New Delhi: Manohar Publishers and Distributors, 2018
Abstract: The central theme of this volume is deteriorating India-Pakistan relations. It opens in the aftermath of the Indian takeover of Hyderabad. This had been accomplished so rapidly that there was a widespread feeling in Pakistan that their country would be next to attract the attention of the Indian Army. Matters were worsened by the exodus of more than a million disaffected Hindus from East Pakistan to India. Belligerent speeches were made by both sides and Nehru told the British High Commissioner, Archibald Nye, on 20 November 1948 that ‘the situation in East Bengal was causing him far more anxiety than that in Kashmir’. However it was Kashmir which remained the major cause of tension.
28. The Taliban reader: war, Islam and Politics / Linschoten, Alex Strick Van Ed. and Kuehn, Felix - London: Hurst & Company, 2018
Abstract: The Taliban Reader forges a new path, bringing together an extensive range of largely unseen sources in a guide to the Afghan Islamist movement from a unique insider perspective. Ideal for students, journalists and scholars alike, this book is the result of an unprecedented, decade-long effort to encourage the emergence of participant-centered accounts of Afghan history.  This ground-breaking collection, ranging from news articles and opinion pieces to online publications and poems transcribed by hand in the field, sets the stage for a recalibration of how we understand and study the Afghan Taliban. It challenges researchers to forge new norms in the documentation of conflict and provides insight into the future trajectory of political Islamism in South Asia and the Middle East.
29. Sacred mandates: Asian international relations since chinggis Khan / Timothy, Brook Ed. - London: The University of Chicago Press, 2018
Abstract: This book argues that understanding the diversity of past legal orders helps explain the forms of contemporary conflict, as well as the conflicting historical narratives that animate tensions. Rather than proceed sequentially by way of dynasties, the editors identify three "worlds"--Chingssid Mongol, Tibetan Buddhist, and Confucian Sinic--that represent different forms of civilization authority and legal order. This novel framework enables us to escape the modern tendency to view the international system solely as the interaction of independent states, and instead detect the effects of the complicated history at play between and within regions. Contributors from a wide range of disciplines cover a host of topics: the development of international law, sovereignty, state formation, ruler legitimacy, and imperial expansion, as well as the role of spiritual authority on state behavior, the impact of modernization, and the challenges for peace processes
30. ?Climate change and the UN security council / Scott, Shirley V. Ed. and Ku, Charlotte - UK: Edward Elgar, 2018

A cross-disciplinary team of experts addresses the range of political and legal considerations involved, including, the scope for adapting existing Council tools to address the challenge of climate change, the legality and legitimacy of doing so, the attitude of the P5 and EU, and Council action to date. Specific tools considered include establishing an international court or tribunal, targeted sanctions, peace missions, and legislation'.

32. State of the nation: democracy governance and Parliament / Kashyap, Subhash C - New Delhi: Vitasta, 2018
Abstract: State of the Nation Democracy, Governance and Parliament, reminds us of the true meaning of good governance and what democracy entails. Subhash Kashyap also details practices and protocols followed in the Indian Parliament and the deviations and aberrant behaviour of legislators noting what their actual duties are and ought to be. The author also brings out in a series of biographical sketches his encounters with some remarkable parliamentarians during his long tenure in the Parliament. His essays on value-based education, included in his book, encourage the nurturing of democratic values that are syncretic with India’s Constitution enshrined tenets of Equality, Secularism and life of dignity for all its citizens. This book is a guiding light for all students of democracy, constitution and governance modules.
33. Israel's technology economy / Rosenberg, David - Switzerland: Palgarve Macmillan, 2018
Abstract: This book documents how Israel emerged as one of the world's leading centers of high technology over the last three decades and the impact that it has had, or failed to have, on the wider economy and politics. Based on the study of start-up companies, the project attributes the rise of Israel's tech economy to its unique history, political system, and culture, and shows how those same factors have failed it in the quest to diversify its economy to make it more inclusive and equitable. This work will interest economists, political scientists, Israeli studies academics, investors, policy makers, journalists, and business readers.
34. ISLAM in Southeast Asia: negotating modernity / Saat, Norshahril Ed. - Singapore: ISEAS, 2018
Abstract: "Islam in the Malay world of Southeast Asia or Islam Nusantara, as it has come to be known, had for a long time been seen as representing the more spiritual and Sufi dimension of Islam, thereby striking a balance between the exoteric and the esoteric. This image of 'the smiling face of Islam' has been disturbed during the last decades with increasing calls for the implementation of Shari'ah, conceived of in a narrow manner, intolerant discourse against non-Muslim communities, and hate speech against minority Muslims such as the Shi'ites. There has also been what some have referred to as the Salafization of Sunni Muslims in the region. The chapters of this volume are written by scholars and activists from the region who are very perceptive of such trends in Malay world Islam and promise to improve our understanding of developments that are sometimes difficult to grapple with." - Professor Syed Farid Alatas
?35. Adha Sher / Sitapati, Vinay - New Delhi: Oxford University Press, 2016
36. Vishwa Ke 20 Mahan Samaj Sudharak / Kunwar, Gopi Krishna By Gopi Krishna Kunwar - New Delhi: Granth Akademi, 2018
Abstract: समाज निरंतर परिवर्तनशील रहता है। इससे कोई अंतर नहीं पड़ता कि बाहर से कोई समुदाय या देश कितना स्थिर दिखता है, इसके भीतर कुछ निश्चित बल इसे हमेशा एक या दूसरी दिशा में धकेलते हैं, कभी-कभी एक ही समय में कई विभिन्न दिशाओं में और परिवर्तनों के इन अंतर्निहित बलों के कारण विचार, सोचने का तरीका और सामाजिक समूहों में जीने का एक निश्चित अंदाज समाप्त हो जाता है और दूसरा उसका स्थान ले लेता है। सामाजिक सुधार उन परिवर्तनों का उल्लेख करते हैं, जो उन समूहों की स्थिति को सुधारने के लिए लाए जाते हैं, जो मुख्यधारा की कुछ संस्थाओं, जैसे पितृतंत्र, तानाशाही या धर्म द्वारा दमित हैं। यह पुस्तक आधुनिक समाज के महानतम समाज-सुधारकों में से बीस के बारे में बताती है। इस पुस्तक को उन व्यक्तित्वों पर केंद्रित रखा गया है, जिन्होंने समाज की यथास्थिति में परिवर्तन लाने के प्रयास किए और सबसे महत्त्वपूर्ण है कि जिनके प्रयासों के कारण नए कानून बने या प्रचलित कानूनों में संशोधन हुए। यही कारण है कि मदर टेरेसा जैसे व्यक्तित्व सीधे तौर पर इस पुस्तक के क्षेत्र में नहीं आते हैं, जिनके कार्य मुख्यतः मानवतावादी थे। जिन सामाजिक सुधारकों पर इस पुस्तक में चर्चा की गई है, उनमें उन्नीसवीं सदी के मध्य के विचारक और साहसिक व्यक्तित्व जैसे राजा राममोहन राय, विद्यासागर, एलिजाबेथ कैडी स्टैनटोन और फ्लोरेंस नाइटिंगेल से लेकर अगली सदी के सामाजिक प्रचारक जैसे रॉबर्ट ओवन और फ्लोरेंस केली सम्मिलित हैं।
37.? Balochistan, the British and the Great Game: the struggle for the Bolan pass, gateway to India/ By Heathcote, T.A. ? London: Hurst & Company, 2015
Abstract: The Great Game for Central Asia led to British involvement in Balochistan, a sparsely-populated area in Pakistan, mostly desert and mountain, and containing the Bolan Pass, the southern counter- part of the more famous Khyber. It occupies a position of great strategic importance between Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran and the Arabian Sea. Heathcote's book is a history of the Khanate of Kalat and of British operations against the Baloch hill tribes who raided frontier settlements and the Bolan caravans. Its themes include rivalry between British officials in Sind and the Punjab, high profile disputes between British politicians over frontier policy and organisation, and the British occupation of Quetta, guardian city of the Bolan, in the run-up to the Second Afghan War. Among the many strong characters in this story is Sir Robert Sandeman, hitherto hailed as 'the peaceful conqueror of Balochistan', now revealed as a ruthless careerist, whose personal ambitions led to the fragmentation of the country under British domination. The closing chapter summa- rises subsequent events up to modern times, in which the Baloch have maintained a long-running struggle for greater autonomy within Pakistan.
