520    "In the sphere of future global politics, no region will 
       be as hotly contested as the Asia-Pacific, where great 
       power interests collide amid the mistrust of unresolved 
       conflicts and disputed territory. This is where 
       authoritarian China is trying to rewrite international law
       and challenge the democratic values of the United States 
       and its allies. The lightning rods of conflict are remote 
       reefs and islands from which China has created military 
       bases in the 1.5-million-square-mile expanse of the South 
       China Sea, a crucial world trading route that this rising 
       world power now claims as its own. No other Asian country 
       can take on China alone. They look for protection from the
       United States, although it, too, may be ill-equipped for 
       the job at hand. If China does get away with seizing and 
       militarizing waters here, what will it do elsewhere in the
       world, and who will be able to stop it? In Asian Waters, 
       award-winning foreign correspondent Humphrey Hawksley 
       breaks down the politics--and tensions--that he has 
       followed through this region for years. Reporting on 
       decades of political developments, he has witnessed 
       China's rise to become one of the world's most wealthy and
       militarized countries, and delivers in Asian Waters the 
       compelling narrative of this most volatile region. Can the
       United States and China handle the changing balance of 
       power peacefully? Do Japan, the Philippines, South Korea, 
       and Taiwan share enough common purpose to create a NATO-
       esque multilateral alliance? Does China think it can even 
       become a superpower while making an enemy of America? If 
       so, how does it plan to achieve it? Asian Waters delves 
       into these topics and more as Hawksley presents the most 
       comprehensive and accessible analysis ever of this region"
