An anal­y­sis of the cur­rent state of mar­itime de­fense in Asian waters. With the fi­nan­cial ca­pac­ity of the U.S. to main­tain a per­ma­nent pres­ence in the re­gion in doubt, the strengths and weak­nesses of the na­tions in the re­gion is what should be ex­am­ined in de­tail. The smaller na­tions are also cov­ered as well as the larger ones such as China, In­dia and Ja­pan. The one dis­ap­point­ment of this book was the lack of il­lus­tra­tions and ta­bles to put things in per­spec­tive. This book is a timely ad­di­tion to cur­rent geopo­lit­i­cal thought pro­cesses.
