RED STAR OVER THE PACIFIC: CHINA'S RISE AND THE CHALLENGE TO U.S. MARITIME STRATEGY

Details

An examination of the Chinese Navy’s operational concepts tactics and capabilities and the challenges faced by America’s strategic positio. Combining a close knowledge of Asia and the ability to tap Chinese-language sources with naval combat experience and expertise in sea power theory the authors assess how the rise of Chinese sea power will affect U.S. 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 presents a challenge to America’s strategic position.About the Authors: Toshi Yoshihara and James R. Holmes are associate professors of strategy at the Naval War College. Both authors hold Ph.D.s from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy Tufts University.
