    About the book

    This book is a product of the two-day interactive dialogue organized by Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses (IDSA) entitled "India-Russia Strategic Dialogue: Opportunities and Challenges" on March 13-14, 2009 in New Delhi with the participation of well-known experts from top think-tanks from India and Russia. It was for the first time since the collapse of the Soviet Union that IDSA has organized an event with the aim also to revive dialogue with think-tanks in Russia, to exchange perspectives on the changes in the international and regional security environment and the need for greater Indo-Russian cooperation. The dialogue was aimed at bridging the knowledge gap on Russian affairs in India.

    The book contains an indispensable compendium of views of experts on a variety of security-related issues that have considerable bearing on the Indo-Russian partnership. This volume also symbolizes a continuing interest for interactions and linkages between the strategic communities of both the countries. The issues covered in the book are thematic in nature and perspectives from both Russia and India, written by individual authors. The book should be of particular interest to those tracking the dynamic changes in India-Russia relations and the issues that dominate them.
