Miller Delivers Presentation on Forthcoming Book
On February 11, 2021, Manjari Chatterjee Miller, Associate Professor of International Relations at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, presented her forthcoming book Why Nations Rise: Narratives and the Path to Great Power (Oxford University Press, 2021) – during an event hosted by the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for the Advance Study of India (CASI). The event was presented in partnership with South Asia Center & Perry World House.
During her remarks, Miller talked about the need to understand rising powers, particularly China and India, in the context of historical rising powers which display certain patterns of behavior.
Why Nations Rise, available February 12, 2021, argues that elites in some states actively reframe their image when their economic and military power increases. It reshapes the understanding of what a rising power is, and why the ideational sources of their motivation—and not just material sources—are so important.
