India`s role as a security provider has increasingly been discussed and debated over a period of time. This has received a fillip as a result of India`s growing capabilities, both economic and military. The 2015 edition of the Asian Strategic Review, is possibly the first book which analyses this facet in the Asian context. The book assesses India`s capabilities as well as existing limitations. It contextualises India`s role in relation to important regions, multinational fora and specific countries in Asia. The publication aims to provide greater clarity on the past, present and future contours of India`s role as a security provider, in light of evolving strategic contours and its security implications.
