Book discussion | Changing Dynamics of Indo-Japan Relations

About the book

This book traces the evolution of India-Japan relations, starting from the introduction of Buddhism in Japan to institutionlisation of an annual prime ministerial level dialogue between India and Japan. An attempt has been made to study how the relationship between the two Asian civilisations has evolved over the centuries, putting the three aspects viz. political, economic and cultural/religious together.
