The Why, What and Where of India’s Look East Policy and the Role of Northeast

... And then one day a wall in Berlin came down. Bipolar world became multi polar, calling for greater regional integration. Foreign policy choices were reoriented and India was no exception. It had begun to look east and northeastern states became a factor. But has the new policy succeeded in achieving what it strove for?

In this incisive analysis of the Look East policy, the book unravels the past and future of this policy with a critical gaze on its present.
