The world’s wait and watch strategy has ended.

As China increasingly militarizes islands that the U.N.’s International Court of Justice ruled did not belong to them, a patient effort of diplomacy has been met by China’s brash incursions, provocations, and illegal activity to the astonishment of countries who have watched land, sea, and air rights be threatened. China’s “Might Makes Right” policies and naval build-up are alarming as they use high-pressure tactics, promissory loans, and insist that they are the rightful “Middle Kingdom” with historic rights to the region.

 These books were written for readers to explore topics in an approachable manner by deconstructing the issues and providing a few hundred images to clarify topics presented. Winston and Sachdeva provide a grounded view while also presenting additional topics on China’s economic growth, military expansion, and political influence. Travel through each of the topics in this easy to read text that presents the topics people need to know to gain a broad perspective on the South China Sea. This book, completed in September 2020, is a must-read as we begin this decade.
