India has for decades professed a desire to participate in the international system as a global power. However, India's surprisingly equivocal reaction to the 1990 Gulf Crisis and subsequent military conflict did not reflect these aspirations. This thesis examines Indian foreign policy focusing on (a) changing Indian regional concerns, (b) factors which have prevented India from achieving predominance in South Asia, and (c) India's reactions to the Gulf War. This analysis indicates an apparent shift in Indian priorities from global aspirations to regional and domestic issues. The thesis suggests a careful review of a seeming U.S. "tilt" towards India--despite what appears to be a change in India's policies towards improving relations in South Asia and deteriorating U.S.-Pakistan relations--given India's past willingness to exercise both military and economic force in South Asia to achieve her goals.
