A better understanding of the nature of the relationship between China and India can surely be considered to have “real world” significance. The methodological approach to be adopted will be interpretative in nature. , the book will be concerned with inference. The research question here is constitutive in nature. ” In determining what the nature of the Sino-Indian relationship is in the IOR, an important explanation of how this relationship can be characterized will be offered. The argument that will be made is that existing neorealist arguments cannot explain emerging empirical discrepancies and can be fruitfully augmented with neoliberal and constructivist approaches.

The same is done for India’s South Asia and “Look East” policy. Furthermore, an attempt is made to link official Chinese and Indian naval doctrine to Sino-Indian maritime activity in the IOR. Indeed, there are few comprehensive examinations of Sino-Indian naval doctrine and maritime activity. Specifically, Chapter 2 will be organized by examining: (1) China’s naval strategy and naval forces; (2) the IOR as an expanding zone of Chinese interest; (3) India’s naval strategy and forces; (4) the Indian Navy’s evolving role in the IOR; and (5) alternative interpretations of Sino-Indian activity in the IOR.

The steps towards this transformation are made through the politics of “accommodation” whereby international conflict can be managed and mitigated through a revival of diplomacy and mutual understanding. According to Niebuhr, the intensification of day-to-day interaction is the key to developing mutual trust and resolving international conflict. Finally, Carr’s discussion of “peaceful change,” in line with Frederick Sherwood Dunn’s6 (1937) initial insights on the topic, highlights how a middle ground between idealism and realism is necessary and that the key to resolving international conflict lies in negotiation and bargaining.
