India and International Law, volume 2 examines India’s policy and practical approach to modern and emerging subjects such as energy, investment, sports, banking, biotechnology, taxation, water courses, feminism, air law and role of India in UN reforms. The most discussed interlinked issues of civilian nuclear energy and nuclear weapons are analysed in two separate chapters. This volume also examines legal challenges and offers possible solutions in the area of private international law, which hopefully would serve the purposes of relevant policy-makers, judiciary, common men and women and 2.5 million Non-Resident Indians (NRIs). India and International Law, volume 2 will enable the readers to realize the sheer magnitude of legal challenges faced by India, hence, one way forward is to consider some of the suggestions offered by the authors. It is hoped that these two volumes will provide a useful framework for similar studies and will remain a must source of consultation for those who are interested in India’s state practice on international law.

"I often find it important to be able to see at a glance what a case was about, what the Court decided, and who were the personalities involved in every phase of a case, as judges and as agents and counsel. This book aims to meet that requirement. There is also a practical side to this, in light of the Court's wish, in Practice Directions VII and VIII, to introduce different `cooling off periods' for different personalities connected with the Court's judicial work. [...] For the practitioner and for the student the most important parts of this book are the indexes to the Statute and the Rules of Court and the lists of treaties and other legal instruments cited." - From the Introduction by Shabtai Rosenne

The State Practice of India and the Development of International Law by Bimal N. Patel provides a critical analysis of India’s state practice and development of international law. Providing insight into the historical evolution of Indian state practice from pre-1945 period through the 21st century, the work meticulously and systematically examines the interpretation and execution of international law by national legislative executive and judicial organs individually as well as collectively. The author demonstrates India’s ambitions as a rising global power and emerging role in shaping international affairs, and convincingly argues how India will continue to resist and prevent consolidation of Euro-American centric influence of international law in areas of her political, economic and culture influence.
