This book addresses the compulsions that underlie the China's relations with India and South Korea- both increasingly mutually dependent on China for markets, trade, investments, technology, tourism, etc. It inquires into two sets of regional relationships, with China being the common linking factor. While examining the generational change in the leadership of China, India and South Korea, this study will be a significant addition to the evolving sphere of comparative regional relations.
