Indo-American Bilateral Relations studies the politico-strategic relations between India and the USA from the early years of India’s independence to the present times. The book talks about the various phases of tension and cooperation between the two powers and focuses on the changes that have taken place under various governments.

The book examines the nature and character of strategic issues that have led these countries towards being called ‘Natural Allies’, including contemporary issues, such as nuclear and energy security, which dominate bilateral relations between the two. It analyses the nature and extent of defence cooperation and the reasons inhibiting cooperation beyond joint military exercises. The work is a thorough analysis of past and present events that have shaped and are shaping relations between the two countries and a look at what the future may hold.
