The Dokdo Dispute in Perspective and Avenues for Resolution

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    China’s rise has provoked a substantial debate about its possible consequences for Indian security and its implications for Indian strategy. This review essay examines the parameters of this debate, concentrating especially on the rise of a new American-derived political realism in Indian thinking about China. It argues that in urging India to abandon its longstanding posture of strategic restraint, the new realists overestimate India’s political military capabilities and run the risk for driving India toward a costly and dangerous confrontation with China.
