India-U.S. Relations and Asian Rebalancing

Edited by: Josukutty C. A.

The recent emergence of Asia as a formidable military and economic power constitutes the most significant development in post-Cold War international politics. It incubates a new world order where there are signals of a radical shift in international power equations. These developments in the Asia-Pacific and the growing camaraderie between India and the US have caught the attention of scholars across the world. The aims and interests of the US, China, India, and other regional/middle-level players, coupled with the strategic significance of South China Sea and East China Sea, makes the region a volatile one. The rise of China and its ambition to establish its hegemony in Asia directly challenges the primacy of the US. What role India will play in this ensuing power struggle is of strategic importance and interest. The so-called strategic convergence between India and US is the result of unprecedented rise of China and the schemes of the US to contain it. This volume contains 13 scholarly articles which survey various aspects of the emerging scenario in the Asia-Pacific. In the process, the book's contributors draw valuable insights on the future trajectory of bilateral and multilateral relations in Asia. These essays examine and analyze the meaning, dimensions, and strategic significance of Asian rebalancing and its impact on India-US relations.
