America's Interests in India
In this U.S.-India Initiative Series working paper, author Marshall Bouton explores U.S. strategic interests in a deepened relationship with India and argues that that strengthening relations with India is in the long-term interest of the United States and will help ensure an international system in that accords with U.S. economic and political values.
This paper is one of a series commissioned in conjunction with a major Center for a New American Security study on the future of the U.S.-India relationship. The study, co-chaired by former Deputy Secretary of State Richard L. Armitage and former Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs R. Nicholas Burns, and directed by CNAS Senior Fellow Richard Fontaine, has produced a comprehensive blueprint for the next phase of the U.S.-India strategic relationship, Natural Allies: A Blueprint for the Future of U.S.-India Relations.
