Editorial Reviews


"Gilboy and Heginbotham deliver a thoroughly researched and compelling comparison of Chinese and Indian strategic behaviour, and also provide another 'way ahead for US policy' approach." - Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies --This text refers to the Printed Access Code edition.

Book Description

This book offers an empirical comparison of Chinese and Indian international strategic behavior. The book creates a framework for the systematic and objective assessment of Chinese and Indian strategic behavior in four areas: (1) strategic culture; (2) foreign policy and use of force; (3) military modernization (including defense spending, military doctrine, and force modernization); and (4) economic strategies (including international trade and energy competition).

In this volume, Gilboy and Heginbotham offer an excellent and original comparison of Chinese and Indian strategic behavior. The main point that the authors make is that though in the United States China and India are seen as very different actors - primarily because India is democratic and China is not - in reality their foreign policies are quite similar. Both are suspicious of US hegemonic designs. Both are highly critical of outside powers intervention in the domestic affairs of other countries. They share similar views on global warming (the West should pay for the costs of reducing emissions) and many international trade issues. And both countries have adopted offensive military force postures and military doctrines, allowing them to put considerable coercive pressure on their neighbors. Behind this convergence of foreign policy approaches is their common status as rising regional powers as well as a tough nosed, Realpolitik approach to foreign affairs on the part of their strategic elites. In short, geo-strategic location trumps any differences in political ideology and democratic traditions.

At times, it seems that Heginbotham and Gilboy may go too far in stressing the similarities between China and India. After all, China on the whole appears to be far more assertive on territorial issues than is India, and it fits in more poorly with the existing global international order that was created by the United States and its allies in the wake of World War II. Moreover their characterization of strategic culture arguments is a bit simplistic and seems something of a straw man.

Nonetheless, the overall thrust of their arguments is highly persuasive, and backed with a wealth of empirical material.

I've read work by these authors before, as always highly informative and written in a clear non-pedantic manner. Reads like an extended Foreign Policy expose. Well recommended
