(p.1) Introduction
The Evolution of India's Israel Policy

Nicolas Blarel

Oxford University Press

The introductory chapter presents the empirical and theoretical puzzles that the book is looking to answer. Why did India recognize Israel in 1950 but deliberately delay the establishment of official diplomatic relations for more than 40 years? What are the conditions under which we are most likely to observe foreign policy change? The chapter reviews the literature and argues that these questions have been left unanswered. Building on theories of public policy and foreign policy change, a new theoretical argument is introduced to present a new narrative of India’s Israel policy over the last 60 years. The chapter also identifies the five critical policy junctures which are analyzed in the book.
