Three powerful countries-China, India, and the United States-are competing for dominance in Asia, and U.S. policymakers need to adapt to the realities of a multipolar world. A pioneering, essential guide, Shifting Superpowers aims to energize the debate over the proper direction of U.S. foreign policy as Americans look to shed the burdens of global hegemony to other countries capable of defending their own interests in their own regions. Journalist Martin Sieff shows how American policies have contributed to the two countries' rising mutual suspicion and resentment of the United States, and explores the traditional enmity between India and China, showing why they are determined to minimize friction and avoid any risk of conflict. He challenges policymakers to confront common perceptions: China is not automatically America's sworn enemy and India is not going to be America's loyal ally in the coming decades. Wisdom, realism, and moderation are essential in framing policies for both nations.

From the Back Cover:

"Martin Sieff, who has read widely, thought deeply, and mastered his subject, offers a trenchant and timely critique of one of our reigning orthodoxies, which presents China as our inevitable adversary and India as our new partner in a latter-day variant of containment. But he goes the extra mile in this splendid book and offers an alternative and enlightened approach, one that our leaders and foreign policy pundits would do well to take seriously." --Rajan Menon Monroe J. Rathbone Professor of International Relations, Lehigh University

Review:

Americans have remained curiously ignorant and incurious about India but have been obsessive and often wrong about China. Martin Sieff rectifies this imbalance in this worthwhile book. His discussion of the complex relationship between India and China relations is particularly first-rate, and his pragmatic approach to U.S. relations with both countries is simply superb. (Charles W. Freeman, former Assistant Secretary of Defense; former U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia)
