Co-edited and introduced by Ashley Tellis, with chapters by leading Asia specialists including Dmitri Trenin, director of the Carnegie Moscow Center, this book, the eleventh volume in NBR’s Strategic Asia series, explores how Asian states are responding to the rise of China and India and the strategies these states are pursuing to preserve their national interests. In each chapter, a leading expert investigates how a country or region perceives China’s and India's growth based on geopolitical, economic, cultural, military, and historical interactions and draws implications for U.S. interests and leadership in the Asia-Pacific.
