    In recent decades, India has taken on a growing global presence. India at the Global High Table is an insightful and integrated analysis of how India is managing its evolving role. Both former U.S. ambassadors to countries in South Asia, Teresita Schaffer and Howard Schaffer shine light on the country’s strategic vision and foreign policy and the negotiating behavior that links the two. The four concepts woven together throughout the book offer an exploration of India today: its exceptionalism; its nonalignment and drive for “strategic autonomy;” its determination to maintain regional primacy; and, more recently, its surging economy. With a specific focus on India’s negotiating practices, India at the Global High Table provides a unique, comprehensive understanding of India as an emerging international power player and the choices it will face between its classic view of strategic autonomy and its desire to find partners in a fast-evolving world.
