New book: ‘India as the Next Global Power’

China’s Nightmare, America’s Dream: India as the Next Global Power

by William H. Avery

“An essential read for scholars and students alike.”
— Jaswant Singh, former Minister for Defence, Finance and External Affairs, Government of India

“There are few more knowledgeable observers of US-India relations than William H. Avery…”
— FirstPost

“With its fresh approach and interesting analyses, the book is quite a good read.”
— The Sunday Indian

About the book:

The book is about what India needs to do to claim global-power status. It covers India’s historical wealth, how far it has declined, where it is today (still an emerging power, but full of natural advantages), and what it must do to claim its rightful place in the world. It is also a frank critique of India’s national passivity in the conduct of its affairs, and a call-to- action for a more assertive India in every sphere: fostering innovation at home, instead of building intellectual property for other nations; aggressively locking up the mineral resources overseas needed to fuel its continued growth; and exponentially increasing military strength, instead of waiting for China to dominate Asia.

The Author:

William H. Avery – global business strategist and former American diplomat – is uniquely qualified to chart India’s rise to global power. He served in the United States Department of State during the Administrations of Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, including a posting to India at the time of the 1998 nuclear tests. He has published extensively on both the global economy and American foreign policy. He graduated from Princeton University, summa cum laude, with a degree in History, and held a Fulbright Scholarship to Austria.
