BAKU - We find ourselves in a world that is more crowded, nervous and anxious than at any moment in history. As technology advances, distances shrink and regional interests collide more frequently than in the past. This is especially true for China.
Asia's Cauldron: The South China Sea and the End of a Stable Pacific by Robert D. Kaplan explores our globalised world, and how Beijing’s uneasy interaction with other Asian countries is shifting the balance of power in Asia.
So, if you seek to understand the complicated waters of the South China Sea, which is crowded with cargo vessels, oil tankers, warships, and provocative war games, then this book offers a superb summary of the geopolitics in East and Southeast Asia.
