Power Realignments in Asia
China, India and the United States


© 2009 | 356 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
China's emergence as a great power is transforming the world, affecting its security, economy and physical environment. Power Realignments in Asia: China, India and the United States explores the impact of China's rise on relations among China, India and the United States.

The topics covered in the collection span traditional security issues-political-military affairs and military modernization-to new challenges posed by rapid and deep economic integration, to global issues like energy security and environmental degradation accompanying rapid economic growth. Each of these issues affects the triangular dynamic among China, India and the United States. A special feature of this volume is that it is an informed assessment of an under-researched theme-China's complex role in simultaneously promoting and inhibiting Indo-U.S. engagement. It examines the many shades of strategic ambiguity, reflected most recently in China's response to the historic Indo-U.S. civil nuclear initiative.

This work will be an important resource for all those interested in Asia's security politics, the American response to the rise of China and India and the changing dynamic of Asian balance of power.

Index

The book is an interesting read for two reasons: one, for the fact that power realignments in Asia are undergoing a swift transformation and will assume concrete shape in coming years…The second more important reason is that the book makes a meaningful contribution to existing literature on the subject and provides a comprehensive analysis from an Indo-US perspective.

Strategic Analysis

The book contains 13 papers on current global power relations with special reference to China, India and the US. If one is seeking further insights into the much spoken of contemporary ‘tectonic shifts’ in international politics, then ‘Power Realignments in Asia’ would prove extremely useful as a knowledge source.
