The introduction to the book provides a comprehensive view of world politics. The documents cover not only US-India bilateral relations during the formative years, but US relations with colonial powers as well. The text, as a whole, provides the context of current international relations. These documents were collected from the Presidential Libraries - FDR to Carter, White House Papers, National Security Council, Office of Strategic Services, Central Intelligence Agency, selections from Foreign Relations (Department's Diplomatic Papers, US Agency for International Development, Divisional Reports of the Department of State, and cables from several US embassies.

Other volumes in the series will explore Indo-China relations; Indo-Pak conflicts of 1965 and 1971; Kashmir; Nuclear Proliferation, and the Soviet and Chinese influence on Indo-US relations as well.
