Tanvi Madan - Fateful Triangle: How China Shaped U.S.-India Relations During the Cold War


Drawing on documents from India and the United States, Madan, a fellow in the Brookings Foreign Policy program specializing in Indian foreign policy, shows that China's current influence on U.S.-Indian relations isn't new, but has been an important factor in the two countries' relationship since 1949. China played a central role in India's nonalignment policy, for instance, and over the last several decades a desire to offset China's influence brought the U.S. and India closer. While it's possible that a perceived threat from China could align the two countries in the future, Madan argues it's not inevitable, and her analysis of the past offers many lessons for today's policymakers.
