The maritime balance in Asia in the Asia century

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    Changes in relative economic power and the declining capacity of maritime powers to project their power ashore mean that China now cannot be stopped from becoming one of the world’s most powerful states both economically and militarily, even if Washington should wish to do so. This will inevitably lead to major change in the strategic architecture of the Asia-Pacific region and the world generally. This being so, the United States needs to develop a new relationship with China and to share power rather than to contest primacy.
