Asian Waters: The Struggle Over the South China Sea and the Strategy of Chinese Expansion
The South China Sea disputes and Beijing’s efforts to solidify its control over contested waters are a source of growing tension in the region, threatening to embroil the United States and partner nations in unwanted conflict. Join the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative for a discussion with veteran BBC journalist Humphrey Hawksley, to discuss his new book, Asian Waters: The Struggle Over the South China Sea and the Strategy of Chinese Expansion. Hawksley explores the intricacies of the dilemma for Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, and other nations in the region as Chinese expansionism runs up against the U.S. security umbrella in a contest that will shape the twenty-first century.
