              This edited volume critically examines the concept of 'security dilemma' and its effects on India-China maritime competition. While the security dilemma between India and China has frequently been used in academic discussions and popular commentary, it has rarely been critically ...analysed. This volume addresses the gap by examining whether the security dilemma is a useful concept in explaining the naval and foreign policy strategies of India and China. China's Belt and Road Initiative and its expansive engagement in the Indian Ocean region, have resulted in India significantly scaling up its investment in their Navy, adding ships, naval aircraft and submarines. This volume investigates how the rivalry is playing out in different sub-regions of the Indian Ocean, and the reactions of other powers, notably the United States and prominent Southeast Asian states. Their reactions to Sino-Indian rivalry are an underexplored topic and the chapters in this book reveal how they selectively use great power rivalry while trying to steer clear of making definite choices. The book concludes with recommendations on mitigating the security dilemma. This book will be of much interest to students of strategic studies, international relations, maritime security and Asian politics.

              The rising demand for energy, the higher costs of oil and gas, and the association of fossil fuels with adverse climate change have all brought a renewed interest in nuclear energy. Nuclear power, however, is itself controversial, because of its costs, its environmental effects a...nd the security risks it poses. This book discusses these critical issues surrounding nuclear power in relation to Asia. It discusses also the politics of nuclear power and the activities of civil society organisations concerned about nuclear issues. Throughout the book the perspectives are included of both proponents and opponents of nuclear power on the key controversial issues.

              Rising India: Status and Power

              Rising India: Status and Power (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              While India's prospects as a rising power and its material position in the international system have received significant attention, little scholarly work exists on India's status in contemporary world politics. This Routledge Focus book charts the ways in which India's internati...onal strategies of status seeking have evolved from Independence up to the present day. The authors focus on the social dimensions of status, seeking to build on recent conceptual scholarship on status in world politics. The book shows how India has made a partial, though incomplete, shift from seeking status by rejecting material power and proximity to major powers, to seeking status by embracing both material power and major power relationships. However, it also challenges traditional understandings of the linear relationship between material power and status. Seven decades of Indian status seeking reveal that the enhancement of material power is one of only several routes Indian leaders have envisaged to lead to higher status. By arguing that a state requires more than material power to achieve status, this book reshapes understandings of both status seeking and Indian foreign policy. It will be of interest to academics and policy makers in the fields of international relations, foreign policy, and Indian studies.

              While India s prospects as a rising power and its material position in the international system have received significant attention, little work exists on India s status in contemporary world politics. This Routledge Focus charts the ways in which India s international strategies... of status-seeking have succeeded, failed and evolved, from Independence up to the present day. The authors place their focus on the social dimensions of status in world politics and draw on recent conceptual scholarship on status-seeking to present an empirical account of India s quest for power and social standing, spanning seven decades. The book shows how India has made a partial, though incomplete, shift from seeking status by rejecting material power and the institution of the great powers, to seeking status by aiming for material parity with and membership of that same institution. This volume reshapes the understanding of Indian foreign policy and will be of interest to academics and policy makers alike.

              China and East Asian Strategic Dynamics: The Shaping of a New Regional Order (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              China and East Asian Strategic Dynamics: the Shaping of a New Regional Order, edited by Mingjiang Li and Dongmin Lee, examines how China's remarkable economic growth and its proactive diplomatic efforts in recent years have not only shored up its importance in global issues, but ...also induced a transformation of the strategic dynamics in East Asia. The authors argue that major power relations in the region appear to be driven by some new momentum along with the changing international environment. The contributors of this edited volume are well-known scholars in their areas of specialty, and the book is divided into five parts. The first part discusses China's soft and hard power in East Asia. The second examines China and the strategic interactions between major powers; this particular section is devoted to discussion on the strategic responses of the major regional powers-the United States, Japan, Korea, India and ASEAN-to China's rise. Part three focuses on China's strategic approach to East Asian regionalism. Of particular note are China's active leadership role in institution-building efforts, strategic calculations, and preference for an informal approach. The fourth section analyzes the Cross-Taiwan Strait relations and their impact on both China and East Asia. The final section of China and East Asian Strategic Dynamics addresses the issue of China and maritime order in East Asia. China and East Asian Strategic Dynamics: the Shaping of a New Regional Order, edited by Mingjiang Li and Dongmin Lee, is a pioneering work. Given that the rise of China is a prominent issue in politics and economics worldwide, this edited collection is essential for a wide audience of policy-makers, academics, and students alike.
