Research Interest: 
The Grand Strategy of Jawaharlal Nehru

Mr. Bernstein will study the Grand Strategy of India s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. Among the questions he hopes to answer are: what influences shaped Nehru s vision for India, how he forged a national identity in an extraordinarily diverse population, and what the unique features of Indian federalism are. Mr. Bernstein hopes that the answers to these questions will shed light on nation building elsewhere.
