The Tribune

This book probes alternative methods to comprehend international relations in the region through critical theories, post-colonial traditions of thought and feminist approaches.

Sunday Pioneer

[This book] is one such intellectual endeavour by a devoted group of IR scholars in search of new paradigm and, as such it is most welcome…The book is full of a variety of new approaches with potential for theory building…I commend the book to all the aspiring and established researchers and teachers of IR all over the world, especially in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The book is a must for all research libraries and think tanks in India and in the West.
