ABOUT THIS BOOK

India and China have emerged as two of the most critical players not only in Asia but the world as a whole. Their mutual engagement during the coming decade will significantly influence the defining of strategic economic relations in Asia and beyond. While China has been accepted as an observer in the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation, India has also made a place for itself in the East Asia Summit and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation. Both India and China have issues of common concern in world politics related to energy security, climate change, terrorism, uni-polarity and global financial instability. This volume, which resulted from a joint seminar of the Observer Research Foundation and the University of Calcutta, probes the constructive as well as conflictual dimensions of the India-China engagement. Well-known economists, strategic experts, senior diplomats and policy makers have done an in-depth and analytical study to present a balanced and meaningful perspective on the all relationship of Asia’s two giants, both with each other as well as with the rest of the world.
