Even until the late 1990s, most scholars hardly paid attention to the likely rivalry or competition between India and China in East Asia. Although opinions had been divided, China’s march to dominate the region was nearly unchallenged with the accretion of huge economic and military power. With the US deeply embroiled in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Japan mired in economic stagnation and India still trying to wriggle out of decades of red tape, political lethargy and a reticence to look beyond its immediate vicinity, it was surmised that East Asia would have no choice but to accept the new reality of a China-led regional hierarchy. Which means, to follow the historical trend, a new order would come about, replacing the older one.
