No other topic today challenges the contemporary strategic imagination more than the implications of phenomenal rise of China not just for its neighbourhood but for the globe. In the recent past, apprehension about Chinese President Xi Jinping’s ambitions has given way to another sentiment, that China may be inching toward overreach—both economic as well as geopolitical. As China builds economic power through these efforts, it will sharpen its capacity to convert that power into geopolitical influence including in its neighbourhood in South Asia, SE Asia, East Asia, Eurasia, Pacific, Africa and Latin America. The various facets of China’s rise have been captured by Dipanjan Roy Chaudhury, Diplomatic Editor, The Economic Times through his writings over the past year in the esteemed paper. This book is a selection from Dipanjan Roy Chaudhury’s articles published in The Economic Times.
