Maritime Power Building: New 'Mantra' for China's Rise Rs.795.00/-


The growth of China's maritime prowess has been a key facet marking the ascendency of its comprehensive national power. A fact amply indicated both by the articulation of the Chinese leadership and empirical evidences, it flows from Beijing`s realisation of the growing salience of the oceanic realm and the attendant imperative of being strong at sea for China to attain the status of a global power. In recent years, the scale and speed with which, the erstwhile continental power has accreted all facets of its maritime capacity- both civilian and military - has surpassed the best practitioners of the `maritime trade-craft`, worldwide.

In this book titled `Maritime Power Building: New `Mantra for China`s Rise', Mantra' is an Indian word denoting a sacred utterance, believed to have spiritual power.

The book is a collective endeavour of India`s National Maritime Foundation (NMF) and the U.S. Centre of Naval Analysis (CNA). It seeks to collate the academic efforts and perspectives of the two premier maritime think-tanks located on the opposite sides of the globe to examine and extrapolate China`s approach to maritime power building. A key facet addressed is the modernisation of the PLA Navy, which is the final arbiter and preserver of China`s maritime and overseas interests in the extended Indo-Pacific region. The book is aimed at facilitating an understanding of the opportunities and challenges of China`s rise as a maritime power for the region in particular, and for the world at large.
