China and India: Cooperation or Conflict?
Waheguru Pal Singh Sidhu and Jing-dong Yuan (Lynne Rienner, 2003)
A project of the International Peace Academy and the Monterey Institute of International Studies. What is the reality of the increasingly important security relationship between China and India? The authors explore a range of key issues, including mutual distrust and misperception (perhaps the most important factor), the undemarcated border, the status of Tibet and Sikkim, trade, the tussle over various nonproliferation treaties, terrorism, the regional roles of the US and Pakistan, and the impact of domestic public opinion and special interests. They do see a trend toward a more pragmatic approach in Beijing and New Delhi to managing differences and broadening the agenda of common interests. Nevertheless, they conclude, significant obstacles remain to the amicable relationship necessary for regional peace and stability, posing a daunting challenge to policymakers in these two rising powers.
