India and the United States in the 21st Century: Reinventing Partnership
Ambassador Teresita Schaffer discussed the release of her new book on U.S.-India Relations, India and the United States in the 21st Century: Reinventing Partnership. Thomas Pickering, former U.S. Ambassador to India, and David Good, Chief Representative for North America, Tata Sons, Ltd., gave their own analyses of Ambassador Schaffer's book and participated in the discussion that followed.
India and the United States in the 21st Century: Reinventing Partnership examines the astonishing new strategic partnership between the United States and India. Unlike other books on the subject, it brings together the two countries success in forging bilateral relations and their relatively skimpy record of seeking common ground on global issues despite the vibrant new network of bilateral ties. Ambassador Schaffer proposes a policy of inclusion and candor, with the United States taking the relationship global and regional by helping to move India into global councils of leadership.
