There is some debate among Chinese analysts about the position and role of India in the 21st century. Orthodox and reform views differ over whether or not Third World nations will rise in strength to occupy a significant position in the future multipolar world. Orthodox authors predict that today’s developing nations will be crucial in transforming world politics, while reformists do not foresee that they will develop enough power to exert a major influence and compete with the five poles. The geo-strategic position of the region has enhanced its importance to the world. It is neighbouring Afghanistan, Iran and China and it is very near to Gulf states and Central Asia. It is further hoped that the book will prove to be of immense value to teachers, students and researchers.
