VN khanna or Rajiv sikri - for IR and Diplomacy

After scanning lots of threads I am still not able to decide upon my primary resource for international relations and diplomacy part of GS mains. Can someone suggest a decent book?
I have come across -
1) Rajiv Sikri
2) VN Khanna
3) Sumit Ganguly.
Anybody familiar with these?
Thanks a ton

    Yesterday I bought R. Sikri and read it. It's good book, gives a broader perspective of India's diplomatic relations and strategies. A brilliant foundation book for IR.
    No idea about other 2 two books.
  • read the handbook on IR by David Scott and append it using IDSA pdf...both uploaded on folder4ias...
    Dont divulge too much into history part while reading the handbook... These two sources will sort out the IR part for you.
  • Get the world focus annual issues(nov-dec)+ india's relations with neighbours..they are good and updated
