Can the BRICS truly create a New World Order?

October 9, 2013

That is the question addressed by Jagannath Panda in the latest monograph (link opens a pdf file) from India’s Institute for  Defense and Strategic Analysis.  Dr. Panda examines the rise of the BRICS as a challenge to Western dominance.  That the BRICS present such a challenge is inarguable; whether it can succeed in supplanting the West remains an open question.  Panda argues that the key to a BRICS led remaking of the world order lies in the relationship between China and India, the world’s two most populous nations.  Panda examines the two in context, their joint desires and their competing interests, and assesses the likelihood of their finding enough common ground to overturn the five century dominance of the West.  Written from an Indian perspective, this is certainly a worthwhile read.
