Abstract : The purpose of this Area Handbook for India is to describe briefly and in general terms the political, economic and social basis of Indian society, to outline its domestic and foreign policies and to evaluate its strengths and weaknesses. The present study represents a thorough revision of the Human Relations Area Files Area Handbook for India, which was issued in 1958, to consider the fundamental changes which have taken place and to utilize the many source materials which have become available since the earlier study was published. It supersedes the Interim Revision to the Area Handbook for India, published in March 1963 to fill the immediate need for an updated edition of the original Handbook pending the completion of the full revision.
