About The Book :

India remains integral in all the discourses on Asian Century. Eminent scholars have conceptualized and provided  nuanced interpretations of India's aspirations, threats, and options with regard to Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia  and China in South China Sea. Acknowledging these scholarly views but stepping beyond, a set of emerging  scholars from India attempt to examine the concepts of nations, national identity and war, and multilateralism in  this book. Extrapolating these concepts into current affairs, they then evaluate CPEC, India-Afghanistan- Pakistan, and China-Taiwan conundrum. They also critically look at the emerging challenge of private military  contractors in international security and the potentially provocative Russia-India-China alliance using the  Primakov Doctrine, taking de-dollarization as a case study. The student-authors were mentored and guided in  their research for their contributions during their internship with Praghna Centre for Research and Defence  Research and Studies, as part of a research writing program spanning four months.
