Pax Americana---the global order established after the collapse of the Soviet Empire---is increasingly being challenged especially by former imperial behemoths, China and Russia. As the US ceases to be the sole superpower, today there is an increasing global disorder. This book is a study of the causes and consequences of this disorder, examining alternative claims for a desirable economic policy in which India must assist US in containing China in order to prevent a Third World War.
