Why Nations Rise: Narratives and the Path to Great Power with Manjari Chatterjee Miller

What are rising powers? Do they challenge the international order? Why do some countries, but not others, become rising powers? In Why Nations Rise, Manjari Chatterjee Miller argues that some countries rise not just because they develop the military and economic power to do so, but because they develop particular narratives about how to become a great power in the style of the great power of the great power of the day. She uses historical cases to understand the divergent paths of contemporary China and India.
