Latin Americas expanding political, economic, and military relationships with actors outside the Western Hemisphere have been an important part of the dynamics of globalization in the post-Cold War world. For the U.S. military and U.S. political leaders, understanding those dynamics and the challenges, opportunities, and vulnerabilities they imply is an important part of managing U.S. security in a complex and increasingly interdependent world. While Chinese, Russian, and Iranian activities in the region have received substantial scrutiny by the U.S. security community and independent scholars, much less attention has been given to the role of India, and its implications. In the present monograph, Dr. Evan Ellis of the U.S. Army War College USAWC Strategic Studies Institute SSI makes a broad, yet detailed, comparison of the activities of India and the Peoples Republic of China PRC in Latin America and the Caribbean.
