PDF EBook by Toshi Yoshihara

EBook Description

Combining a close knowledge of Asia and an ability to tap Chinese- PDFlanguage sources with naval combat experience and expertise in sea-power theory, the authors assess how the rise of Chinese sea power will affect U. Red Star Over the Pacific PDF EBookS. maritime strategy in Asia. They argue that China is laying the groundwork for a sustained challenge to American primacy in maritime Asia, and to defend this hypothesis they look back to Alfred Thayer Mahan's sea-power theories, now popular with the Chinese. The book considers how strategic thought about the sea shapes Beijing's deliberations and compares China's geostrategic predicament to that of the Kaiser's Germany a century ago. It examines the Chinese navy's operational concepts, tactics, and capabilities and appraises China's ballistic-missile submarine fleet. The authors conclude that unless Washington adapts, China will present a challenge to America's strategic position.
