Challenges to Interstate Security: China and India in the Twenty-First Century

  • Vidya Nadkarni


This chapter attempts to examine and assess the strategic vision and tactics deployed by China and India as their leaders seek to chart a viable course for their countries in the face of the uncertain pull of an international system undergoing a protracted power shift and the insistent demands of a globalized world of transnational economic, cultural, and information flows. The chapter explains why changes to the Asian security, economic, environmental, and socio-cultural landscapes presaged by the rise of China and the countervailing rise of India raise important questions for US strategy and policy in the twenty-first century.
