    While it is commonly believed that the time for major wars has passed, thesecurity environment is becoming more complex. We should, however,remember that whereas there has been no global war after 1945 and noideological war after 1991, the world has not witnessed an absence ofconflict either. Besides the ongoing regional contestations and bilateraldisputes involving sovereignty we are now faced with internal wars of highintensity, often with deep external involvement. West Asia and Africaare the current theatres of war while the situation in East Asia has thepotential to boil over into a catastrophic conflict. The idea that economicinterdependence can prevent conflict—much touted after the end of theCold War—is being severely tested. The theory of power transition is alsoyet to be disproved.
