The Evolution of India's Israel Policy: Continuity, Change and Compromise since 1922 (Oxford International Relations in South Asia)

Four decades had passed since India decided to recognize Israel in 1950. A persistent ambiguity characterized India's Israel policy during this period, without the establishment of any diplomatic ties. The year 1992 saw an abrupt change in strategy, marked by rapid development in bilateral collaboration, especially in sensitive sectors like defense cooperation.

Why did India decide to establish diplomatic relations with Israel only in 1992? How have these relations moved from almost naught to a rapid and substantial development in the next two decades?

This book, part of the Oxford International Relations in South Asia series, attempts to answer these and many other critical questions about relations between the two geopolitically significant nations. It offers a new historical perspective with insights from public policy literature and theories of policy change, as well as recent explanations of foreign policy change.

Blarel argues that the controversial relation between the two countries is an outcome of multiple debates within the Indian polity, arising from differences in ideas, circumstances and leadership.

Salient Features:
  • Offers a fresh take on Indo Israeli relations from a new theoretical perspective informed by recent scholarship
  • Contributes to the growing academic literature on foreign policy
  • Will be an engaging read for anyone interested in understanding India's growing importance in the global scenario

China's Second Continent: How a Million Migrants Are Building a New Empire in Africa

A New York Times Notable Book 

Chinese immigrants of the recent past and unfolding twenty-first century are in search of the African dream. So explains indefatigable traveler Howard W. French, prize-winning investigative journalist and former New York Times bureau chief in Africa and China, in the definitive account of this seismic geopolitical development. China’s burgeoning presence in Africa is already shaping, and reshaping, the future of millions of people. From Liberia to Senegal to Mozambique, in creaky trucks and by back roads, French introduces us to the characters who make up China’s dogged emigrant population: entrepreneurs singlehandedly reshaping African infrastructure, and less-lucky migrants barely scraping by but still convinced of Africa’s opportunities. French’s acute observations offer illuminating insight into the most pressing unknowns of modern Sino-African relations: Why China is making these cultural and economic incursions into the continent; what Africa’s role is in this equation; and what the ramifications for both parties and their people—and the watching world—will be in the foreseeable future.

The Economic Consequences Of Immigration

This book undertakes a comprehensive inquiry into the economic consequences of immigration into the United States and concludes that immigration is, on the whole, beneficial to US natives. Among the many novel features of Simon's analysis are a comparison between the received theory of the international movement of goods and the movement of capital, from which he concludes that they are far less similar than supposed; the analysis of the cost of the use of capital by immigrants; and the estimate of the cost of use of demographic capital. Although the book is based on experience in the United States, its investigations apply to most of the developed countries.

Saudade: Road To Requiem

Saudade is the deeply emotional saga of twins Samarah and Aahil's journey to rebuild their identities after suffering two
catastrophic blows. While Samarah, filled with anger and loneliness, struggles in the shadows of anonymity, Aahil personifies the emotionally detached man incapable of love, loyalty or commitment.

Four years later, when fate brings the estranged siblings face to face with a childhood friend, Samarah is compelled to confront the searing guilt she feels over her failed relationships, and Aahil the truth about his soulless existence. Seeking a forgotten concept of 'normalcy', the siblings travel out of their lost immigrant days spent in England to Delhi – a home that contains memories of love and loss in equal haunting measure. As their group of tossed-salad-like friends map their own conflicts and seek resolutions within a frail modern society, Samarah and Aahil learn the importance of dignity and trust.

This poignant and powerful story of loss, friendship and ultimate human resilience, unfolds against a tapestry of tender memories. A gravely human and timeless tale, it resonates in both heart and mind.

The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan

Now a Major Motion Picture titled Whiskey Tango Foxtrot starring Tina Fey, Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Alfred Molina, and Billy Bob Thornton.


When Kim Barker first arrived in Kabul as a journalist in 2002, she barely owned a passport, spoke only English and had little idea how to do the “Taliban Shuffle” between Afghanistan and Pakistan. No matter—her stories about Islamic militants and shaky reconstruction were soon overshadowed by the bigger news in Iraq. But as she delved deeper into Pakistan and Afghanistan, her love for the hapless countries grew, along with her fear for their future stability. In this darkly comic and unsparing memoir, Barker uses her wry, incisive voice to expose the absurdities and tragedies of the “forgotten war,” finding humor and humanity amid the rubble and heartbreak.

The Costs and Benefits of Large-Scale Immigration: Exploring the Economic and Demographic Consequences for the UK

The refugee crisis which has consumed Europe in recent months has thrust immigration the top of the political debate. Heart-rending images of migrants making perilous journeys from North Africa and the Middle East have added a new level of poignancy to the moral and practical considerations concerning mass movements of people. Calibrating the right response is critical, given that the pressures giving rise to the present scenario - conflicts and poverty - are unlikely to disappear soon.The questions raised for the UK are multi-faceted: to what extent should we limit the flow of migrants into Britain? How far should we collaborate with other EU countries on migration policy and how far should we go it alone? What criteria should we use for granting asylum or permitting the entry of economic migrants? To what extent should the interests of migrants and their countries of origin be reflected in these criteria?Never has there been a greater need for dispassionate analysis of how such large-scale population flows should be managed. In this even-handed study, the distinguished economist Robert Rowthorn reviews the evidence about the costs and benefits of recent large-scale immigration into the UK. Contrary to the headlines generated by previous studies, he demonstrates that the fiscal impact is slight while the long-term demographic impact is great; and that while some may gain from large influxes of people from overseas, others - usually those with least say in the matter - stand to lose out.
