  • Indian Defence Review (IDR) had earlier, in 2011, published a Book titled “Threat from China” edited by Late Bharat Verma. Team IDR felt that since May 2014 when the National Democratic Alliance government took over the reins of governance in India bringing in a more focussed, dynamic and assertive approach in conduct of its foreign relations, it was necessary to review the security paradigm between India and China. Moreover, around the same time there had been a tactile parallel change in leadership at the helm in China too. 

    During the preliminary discussions there were strong views from a certain section of the community of academic scholars and diplomats that China was not an existential THREAT. However, the military community felt that the People’s Liberation Army’s substantive military modernisation manifested such a THREAT. The academic and diplomatic community did feel that there was surely a CHALLENGE in dealing with an assertive rising China - more relevant with a decline of US interest in Asia. To accommodate both views the Title was thus revised to China - Threat or Challenge?”

    The Book is a compilation of articles written and published in the IDR since May 2014. Some articles are by Authors who were requested to express their contrary views on the subject so as to present to the Readers broad based views of various Authors across the spectrum on issues impacting India-China bilateral relations. The final verdict, of course, lies entirely with the discerning Readers.

    Lt Gen JS Bajwa

    Lt. General J,S. Bajwa was commissioned into the Infantry in 1973. In the course of his military career, he has served along all the borders of his country. His interest in the India–China border was initiated when he was posted to the Scouts in Uttar Pradesh (now Uttranchal) in 1982. As a colonel, he was assigned the responsibility of dealing with the India–China border from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh, at the Military Operations Directorate, army headquarters, from 1997 to 2000. He was also the military representative in the Experts Group dealing with the delineation of the line of actual control and the military activities related to it. He was also posted to the army’s Perspective Planning Directorate, where he was assigned the task to assess the Chinese military capability and potential, which could manifest as a threat to India. He has been chief of staff of the army’s Eastern Command, which is primarily responsible for managing the contentious border problem with China in Arunachal Pradesh.
