Pax Indica: India and the World in the Twenty-first Century is a 2012 non-fiction book written by Shashi Tharoor, about India's foreign policy.[1][2]


In a review of the book, Aditya Menon stated in the weekly Indian English-language news magazine India Today magazine that "...Pax Indica promises to be a seminal work on Indian diplomacy" and that "Tharoor covers almost every possible aspect of the foreign policy challenges before the country in the 21st century", providing insights on "India's relations with the US, Pakistan, the UN". However, he does not treat India's relations with Iran and China in depth.[3]
