Summary
"Ever since the two ancient nations of India and China established modern states in the mid-twentieth century, they have been locked in a complex rivalry ranging across the South Asian region - a rivalry punctuated by numerous military confrontations and one outright war, frequent disagreements over national and international policies, and pervasive mutual suspicions. Despite some instances of cooperation, Sino-Indian relations have been characterized more by conflict than by friendship." "Noted scholar John W. Garver offers an examination of the two countries' actions and policy decisions over the past fifty years." "Protracted Contest will be a standard reference for historians and political scientists of India, China, and South Asia as well as government analysts around the world who specialize in issues affecting these countries."--BOOK JACKET
