A review of the existing literature on the China-India comparative theme conveys the distinct impression that the literature largely projects China and India as intrinsically competitive entities. While much has been written on where and why China and India are contesting, particularly from a political sense, precise little attention has been devoted to mutual collaboration, whether existing or potential. This book explores Sino-Indian ties from a comparative economic perspective and argues that it is erroneous to visualize the ties either from exclusively competitive or collaborative perspectives. The future relationship between the two countries is expected to be characterized simultaneously by two #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;C#xE2;#xAC;"s: Competition and Collaboration. Arguing further that economics will dominate the fundamentals of future bilateral engagement, the book contends that benefits from collaboration are significant and encourages both countries to explore and expand the scope of such collaboration. At the same time, given their size and aspirations, competition in the economic sphere is only natural and should be accepted upfront in all discussions on the comparative perspective. The book's refereshing angle makes it a must-read for those interested in Sino-Indian relationship.
