Book description

This handbook offers a comprehensive overview of the international relations of South Asia.

South Asia as a region is increasingly assuming greater significance in global politics for a host of compelling reasons. This volume offers the most comprehensive collection of perspectives on the international politics of South Asia, and it it covers an extensive range of issues spanning from inter-state wars to migration in the region. Each contribution provides a careful discussion of the four major theoretical approaches to the study of international politics: Realism, Constructivism, Liberalism, and Critical Theory. In turn, the chapters discuss the relevance of each approach to the issue area addressed in the book. The volume offers coverage of the key issues under four thematic sections:

- Theoretical Approaches to the Study of the International Relations of South Asia

- Traditional and Emerging Security Issues in South Asia

- The International Relations of South Asia

- Cross-cutting Regional Issues

Further, every effort has been made in the chapters to discuss the origins, evolution and future direction of each issue.

This book will be of much interest to students of South Asian politics, human security, regional security, and International Relations in general.
