Asian Maritime Strategies
By Bernard D Cole 9781591141624 Naval Institute Press Hardcover & eBook 320 pages October 2013
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.
