So Much for “Chindia”

E-Notes: China And India: A Rivalry Takes Shape – FPRI.

Harsh Pant from King’s College London delves into how China’s rivalry with India is taking shape, moving the region beyond speculation about “Chindia” and tracking how China’s rise is compelling India to kick its own investments in its military into high gear.

In play are relationships with every other country in the region, from Iran to Indonesia, and again, the proximate cause of the growing trans-Himalayan tension is domestic politics in China.

An excellent review of the challenges in the region, and a superb compliment to Glaser and Schaffer’s analysis.
