The Elusive Tipping Point: India-China Ties for a New Order is a timely foreign-policy-relevant book. This insightful book delves deep into the reasons for frequent diplomatic and strategic crises between Asia’s two dynamic ancient civilisations with postmodern capabilities. Set in the context of seventieth anniversary of China-India diplomacy, the spotlight is turned on their complex search for neighbourliness and global good. Often a mirage, the positive tipping point in their state-to-state relations is traced through the past, the present and the potential future. A controversial missed opportunity in the past and a collective-win approach for the present are explored. For Beijing and Delhi, imaginative all-weather dialogue is the best option if they wish to stabilise their engagement for the uncertain future. Despite their major military crisis, PRC and India are expected to shape a realistic post-COVID world order.
