The Rise of Chinese Seapower:
Fear, Honor, and Interest

About the Lecture: Over the past decade, China’s emergence as a major maritime power has unsettled the status quo in Asia and beyond. By assessing the sources of Chinese seapower, this presentation will argue that China’s seaward turn will pose a long-term challenge to U.S. maritime strategy.
