PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION In view of the revised curriculum for the Civil Services Examination a need was felt to bring out a book on INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS strictly in accordance with the syllabus of the Union Public Service Commission. This book has been written strictly according to the syllabus. An endeavour has been made to present the issues in their entirety starting with the genesis of the problem till the present state of affairs. The book has been specially designed to cater to the needs of the candidates opting for International Relations. The authors do not claim any originality and their main effort has been to bring out relevant facts from a plethora of information to meet the requirements of the candidates appearing for the Civil Services Examination. The book will also be of interest to the general reader because it covers a wide range of subjects of current international importance. Suggestions for further improvement of the book are welcome and shall be gratefully acknowledged and incorporated in the next edition.
