Protracted Contest: Sino-Indian Rivalry in the Twentieth Centuryby John W. Garver
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.
A well-crafted and incisive study of Sino-Indian relationsin the past half-century and more.
