What People are Saying About This

Rory Medcalf

This book intelligently unpacks the assertion that the Indian Ocean is of central strategic importance in the 21st century. It dives into the complexities of the Indian Ocean strategic picture, insightfully assesses the changes as China and India rise, and identifies options for America’s role and response. This range of expert perspectives brings out the tension at the heart of US policy in Asia in this Indo-Pacific era: How to maintain a stabilizing role when the strategic theater is expanding and America’s relative capabilities are not. There is no simple answer but this book usefully underscores how partnerships will be the key.
