Rise of the Asian Giants

Rise of the Asian Giants

The Dragon-Elephant Tango

By Tan Chung
Edited by Patricia Uberoi

This comparative study by Chinese social scientists of the Chinese and Indian development experiences over six decades of independent nationhood is witness to the fact that China and India are now looking at each other directly in search of a win-win partnership as both countries transform themselves into economic powerhouses.

About This Book

While the rise of China has long been an accepted fact of international economic and political relations, the more recent rise of India as an economic power has provoked intense global interest. This book presents a Chinese assessment of how China and India see themselves each in relation to the other, focusing on their experiences of modernization and economic reform and their ramifications on each country’s role in global affairs. Eschewing the geo-political idiom of competition and rivalry between emerging Asian giants, the book seeks to understand the parallel, complementary, convergent and divergent development experiences from a more self-consciously geo-civilizational perspective, contextualizing developments in both the short-term framework of independent nationhood, against the more immediate background of nationalist and anti-imperialist struggles, and in the longue durée of shared, continental histories.
