Central Asia, China and India: Historical, Economic, Political and Cultural Relations

Rashmi Doraiswamy (Editor)

While there are books that examine the relationship between Central Asia and India, or Central Asia and China or China and India, there are few books that examine the triangular relationship between what is a very significant macro-region within Asia. This book is a collection of papers presented at a national conference on Central Asia, China and India: Historical, Economic, Political and Cultural Relations organized in 2016. The historical links between China and India and the role of Central Asia as a bridge is charted out in detail. This volume looks not only at state-driven linkages (as in the case of economic cooperation between states in the region) but also at people-to-people interactions through informal bazaars and migrations. History, too is seen through alternative representatives or oral testimony, representation and memory. Buddhism, the religion that links India with large parts of Asia, is focused upon through monuments and sites. Foreign economic policy and how it propets foreign policy objectives is analysed. The periphery and its centrality to Chinese foreign policy thought is also dealt with. The SCO, the regional organization that brings together the main players of the Eurasian continent, is the theme of several articles in this volume.
