China Goes to Sea: Maritime Transformation in Comparative Historical Perspective
Monday, 10 August 2009 11:37



Editors: Andrew S Erickson, Lyle J Goldstein and Carnes Lord
Publisher: Naval Institute Press


From Baird Maritime:


This is a vital book that ought to be read by all the world’s political leaders and their advisors, senior military personnel and pro-active business people.

Not only does it, as it claims, put China’s maritime transformation into historical perspective, it puts almost all maritime commerce into historical perspective. In analysing China’s current situation, it provides a brilliant overview of global commercial history.

Comprising a collection of essays from 17 clear headed and far sighted scholars it succinctly analyses present day China and its position in the maritime world, indeed in the whole world.

This is one of those rare books that delivers vastly more than it promises. A fine piece of literary jewellery full of smaller gems.
