Join us for the next RAS Book Club session on the 9th of August, where we will discuss India's China Challenge – A Journey through China's Rise and what It means for India by Ananth Krishnan. This is an in-person session at Garden Books. (There will not be an online session.)

About the Book

Ananth Krishnan first moved to China in the summer of 2008. In the years that followed, he had a ringside view of the country's remarkable transformation. He reported from Beijing for a decade, for the India Today and The Hindu. This gave him a privileged opportunity that few Indians have had – to travel the length and breadth of the country, beyond the glitzy skyscrapers of Shanghai and the grand avenues of Beijing that greet most tourists, to the heart of China's rise.

India's China Challenge tells the story of a complex political relationship, and how China – and its leading opinion-makers – view India. It looks at the economic dimensions and cultural connect, and the internal political and social transformations in China that continue to shape both the country's future and its relations with India.

Please note: this is a book discussion, not a talk. The author will not be present.
