This book shows the likely course of china's foreign policy and the evolution of the economy. It analyses an issue or set of issues that are likely to be of international concern during the 21st century.
The ambitious purpose of this book is to examine important political and economic problems not only individually, but in relation to one another.
The book had its origins in the widely held recognition that many of the assumptions, policies and institutions that have characterised international relations during the past 30 years are inadequate to the demands of today and the foresseeable demands of the 21st century.
The book seeks to identify those future conditions and the kinds of adaptations they might require. It is not the book's purpose to arrive at a single or exclusive set of goals. Nor does it focus upon the foreign policy or national interests of India alone. Instead, it seeks to identify to goals that are compatible with the perceived interests of most states, despite differences in idealogy and in levels of economic development.
