The twenty-first century is likely to witness Asias two largest civilizations, China and India, join the United States in an elite club of global superpowers. By some economic indicators, the two Asian giants are already the second and third largest economies in the world, and they are developing world-class militaries to complement that economic clout. While Beijing and Delhi have spent the past half-century free from armed conflict and enjoy cordial diplomatic relations, elements of rivalry have shadowed the relationship since the two countries went to war in 1962 over their disputed Himalayan border. In the twenty-first century, that rivalry has evolved in unpredictable ways, advancing in some arenas and retreating in the face of growing cooperation in others. Cold Peace: ChinaIndia Rivalry in the Twenty-First Century updates and deepens our understanding of the ChinaIndia relationship by unraveling the complex layers of the contemporary ChinaIndia rivalry. This book draws from over 100 interviews with subject-matter experts, government officials, and military officers in India, China, and the United States between November 2011 and July 2013. It also benefits from rare and unique field research at the disputed ChinaIndia border in Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh; at the contested town of Tawang in the Himalayas; at Dharamsala, the seat of the Tibetan Government in Exile; at the Andaman and Nicobar Islands; and on Hainan Island, which administers Chinas South China Sea territories. With 14 chapters dedicated to issue-specific studies, including Threat Perceptions in China-India Relations, the border dispute, Tawang, Tibet, the Dalai Lama succession issue, maritime security, and the role of the United States and Pakistan in SinoIndian relations, Cold Peace provides a comprehensive examination of the evolution of ChinaIndia relations.

    In recent years the narrative surrounding China's ';peaceful rise' has given way to a more ominous story of friction, ambition, and great-power rivalry. As Chinese foreign policy has grown more nationalist and assertive, its intensifying competiti...

Cold Peace takes us on a fascinating tour through the Himalayas to the Indian Ocean and from Tibet to Pakistan to deconstruct the complex layers of the Sino-Indian relationship. In describing the rivalrous cooperation between China and India, Jeff M. Smith has crafted the rare book that is valuable to the veteran policymaker and accessible to the interested reader. -- Kurt Campbell, former Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, Chairman and CEO of The Asia Group, LLC Smiths analysis sheds new light on the complex dynamics underpinning the turbulent China-India relationship. Part history book, part policy tome, Cold Peace delivers. -- Richard Myers, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Drawing upon numerous interviews, as well as other material, Jeff M. Smith demonstrates why the interactions among India, Pakistan and China, are, and will continue to be, of vital concern to the U.S. policy makers for years to come. -- Dov Zakheim, former Under Secretary of Defense Cold Peace offers a comprehensive survey of the geostrategic interaction between China and India. Smith looks into little-studied arenas of rivalry such as the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Based on extensive interviews with Indian and Chinese analysts, this book gives new insight into the views and policies of both Beijing and New Delhi. A solid, insightful, first rate work. -- John W. Garver, Georgia Institute of Technology; author of Protracted Contest: Sino-Indian Rivalry in the Twentieth Century
