Excerpt

The problems of Indian-American relations will undoubtedly receive increasing attention in the United States and India in the years ahead. Yet discussion of the subject has so far been limited almost entirely to newspaper and magazine articles. This brief book therefore attempts to draw together the main facts of past relations in a connected account, and to follow this up with some broad observations on American policy toward India. The analysis is a revised and expanded version of a paper which was originally written for the information of delegates to a private, unofficial conference on Indian-American relations, held in Delhi during December 12-22, 1949 by the Indian Council of World Affairs and the American Institute of Pacific Relations.

Now the book is made available to a larger public in the hope that it will be of general use in promoting understanding of a segment of the world in which we live. No effort is made here to refer to every question known to affect the Indian-American relationship, or to describe in great detail any of the topics considered. The purpose is simply to provide a suggestive survey as an introduction to the future.

Although the book is issued under the auspices of the American Institute of Pacific Relations, it should be noted that the author alone is responsible for all statements of fact or opinion in the study.
