His latest book on India and the World of the 21 st Century which he calls as “Pax Indica” is a 450 page political analysis of the emerging multipolar world and India’s own position in this evolving new geopolitical dynamics.
Tharoor brings to bear his rich experience in International Affairs in analyzing India’s relationship with Pakistan, China and the United States in particular that will define our own security and peace in the Indian sub continent. He has not ignored the great potential in developing closer ties with African and South African countries as well as adjusting to the new realities of the Middle-East/Arab world.
