India's economic interests and its self imagination as an emerging global power have assumed a higher priority in defining India's foreign policy and security goals since early 1990s. This has guided the Indian policy makers to intensify its engagements with Iran, Saudi Arabia, Israel and other GCC countries - around which Indian foreign policy in the region revolves today in the political and economic sense of the term. This book deals with evolving political and economic dynamics and interactions of India with global and regional powers in West Asia, with particular focus on Persian Gulf in the post-Cold War period. It examines India's multi-dimensional relations with global powers such as USA, Russia, China and regional powers and organisations like Iran, Israel, Turkey and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) respectively.
