This chapter introduces the readers to the key debates in Indian defence policy and charts out the outline for the various chapters in the volume. Overall, the chapters in this volume document the evolution in Indian defence policy over the last six decades and the major debates that have shaped its trajectory. This is a subject that has not received adequate attention in the scholarly literature, and the chapters in this volume, written by scholars and policy-makers, have tried to develop a framework that may help us in better understanding the changes and continuity in Indian defence policy as well as its impact on India’s emergence as a major global player.
