About this book

China's exponential rise and America's relative decline have led to a transition of power in contemporary Asia. The US pivot towards Asia is the most evident manifestation of such a transition, and Indian foreign policy shows signs of a hedging strategy, with attempts to strengthen ties with both China and the US.

Reviews

“Harsh Pant and Yogesh Joshi’s book is a comprehensive study on India’s responses to China’s rise and the transition of power from an extant hegemon, the United States (US), to the rising challenger, China. … This book is invaluable to anyone with an interest in Asian affairs. Its clear narrative, analytical strength and abundant examples make this a fascinating read, even for the layperson.” (Ann Mary George, Commonwealth & Comparative Politics, Vol. 55 (2), 2017)

“This pithy and readable book examines India’s responses to China’s increasingly assertive approaches to its neighbours and to the US pivot to the Asia-Pacific, signaled by Barack Obama in late 2011. … it provides one of the best short accounts of India’s evolving approach to the changing strategic balance in the region.” (Professor Ian Hall, Australian Institute of International Affairs, June, 2016)


"In this clear and comprehensive study the authors explain India's evolving response to the strategic challenge posed by a rising China. In addition to working more closely with the United States, successive Indian administrations have also sought to stabilize relations with Beijing, while at the same time cooperating with other Asian states (including Japan and Australia) that share an interest in balancing China's growing power. This book makes a strong case that, albeit with potential shifts in emphasis and tone, this mixed, hedged approach is likely to endure." - Aaron L. Friedberg, Professor of Politics and International Affairs, Princeton University, and author of A Contest for Supremacy: China, America, and the Struggle for Mastery in Asia
