about

In South China Sea: Energy and Security Conflicts, foreign policy analyst Christopher L. Daniels analyzes the core causes of the dispute over territorial claims in the South China Sea, which separates some of the world's fastest-growing economies. Starting with the question of access to the billions of barrels of oil and trillions of cubic feet of natural gas presently thought to lie beneath the region's territorial waters and islands, Daniels considers the race for resources and military dominancy along with the rapidly increasing domestic demand for electricity and industrial output of the regional players. South China Sea: Energy and Security Conflicts takes on such troubling questions as the impact of this conflict on global oil and gas prices; China's growth both economically and as a regional military hegemon; and the recent, often rocky, international efforts to mediate the conflict. In addition to policy recommendations for peaceful resolutions to this emerging international challenge, the book includes maps, graphs, primary sources, and overviews of key players-individual and institutional-in what may well be the next great conflict in East Asia.This work is ideal for scholars and students, researchers and diplomatic professionals, military officers and energy traders, and anyone interested in the energy and security politics of East Asia
Christopher L. Daniels is a professor of political science at Florida A&M University with an appointment to its Center for Global Security and International Affairs. He was a professor at Georgetown University and is the author of Somali Piracy and Terrorism in the Horn of Africa (Scarecrow Press, 2012).

Editorial Reviews

South China Sea: Energy and Security Conflicts is a valuable hand book on the causes of the dispute over territorial claims in the South China Sea. . . .There is a great need for books like Professor Daniel's to shed light on China's plans for geopolitical and geostrategic influence in the seas to the Chinese mainland.
