The BRICS is composed of countries which, although strategic in their respective regions, differ in power and influence owing to economic size, military capability, skills and level of poverty. The book teases out the nexus between knowledge, politics, technology and economic activity. The contributors explore the emergence and evolution of the BRICS countries in relation to each member, and teases out the place, role and unique contribution of each one of them to the bloc as well as their relations with each other. Chapters highlight the indisputable influence of BRICS in international relations without glossing over inherent challenges that militate against the bloc operating as it should.
