Being new is never easy, especially in the anarchic world of international politics. New powers such as Brazil, China, and India have navigated difficult terrain as they negotiate their way to the top, signaling a sufficient level of conformity to diffuse tensions and avoid preemptive reprisals. Yet habitually conciliatory diplomacy can cast an emerging state as a lightweight or a pushover. Effective bargaining is therefore the key to balancing these extremes.

Established powers also need straightforward solutions to pressing dilemmas. If the aims of a new power are limited, then engagement is a worthwhile enterprise. If its aims are radically revisionist or revolutionary, then established powers may have to contain it. Assessing the intentions of new powers and responding appropriately is crucial for the maintenance of international peace. In this enlightening study, Amrita Narlikar pinpoints successful negotiating strategies for rising powers. Focusing on three of the most important candidates now vying for international recognition Brazil, China, and India she underscores the commonalities in their diplomatic efforts and isolates the striking differences. Her study aids both emerging players and established countries struggling to reconcile evolving balances of power.

Review:

'Tension and even warfare are likely when a new power emerges and an old power is challenged. The achievement of Amrita Narlikar is to bring analytical rigour to the recent emergence of India, China and Brazil, and her insights are equally applicable to the historical past, to the emergence of Britain or Germany or the United States, as to the present. She steers a deft course between the large-scale issues of the shifting balance of power and the details of negotiating style which were so important in mediating the interests of established and new powers.' * Martin Daunton, Professor of Economic History and Master of Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge * 'Amrita Narlikar's impressive book goes beyond speculation about the intentions of New Powers to a detailed analysis about their international behaviour. New Powers shows in what policy arenas and to what degree global power is shifting.' * Andrew F. Cooper, Coeditor, Rising States, Rising Institutions: Challenges for Global Governance ' * 'In her short but impressively rich and well written book Amrita Narlikar presents clearly argued analyses of the negotiation behaviour of three large countries aspiring to become great powers of the world. New Powers offers an important contribution to the understanding of a changing world together with well-founded advice for the negotiators of both new and established powers.' * Dr. Hilmar Rommetvedt, Head of Research at the International Research Institute of Stavanger (IRIS), Norway *
