Rising China and emerging India are becoming major maritime powers. As they build large navies to secure their growing interests, both nations are churning the waters of the Indo-Pacific —the vast littoral stretching from Africa to Australasia.
Invoking a tale from Indian mythology, Samudra Manthan ("to churn an ocean"), C. Raja Mohan tells the story of a Sino-Indian rivalry spilling over from the Himalayas into the Indian and Pacific Oceans. He examines the prospects for mitigating their competition in this arena. The United States also gets involved, as it attempts to expand its presence and influence in this strategically important region.
Despite the huge differences in the current naval capabilities of China, India, and the United States, Mohan argues, the three countries are locked in a triangular dynamic destined to shape the strategic future of the Indo-Pacific. Samudra Manthan makes sense of that dynamic.
