              The South China Sea is a major strategic waterway for trade and oil shipments to Japan, Korea as well as southern China. It has been the focus of a maritime dispute which has continued now for over six decades, with competing claims from China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia... and Brunei. Recently China has become more assertive in pressing its claims - harassing Vietnamese fishing vessels and seizing reefs in the Philippine claim zone. China has insisted that it has indisputable sovereignty over the area and has threatened to enforce its claim. All of this is unsettling and draws in the United States which is concerned about freedom of navigation in the area. The US has been supporting the Philippines and has been developing security ties with Vietnam as a check upon China. This book examines the conflict potential of the current dispute, it discusses how the main claimants and the United States view the issue, and assesses the prospects for a resolution of the problem.

              The South China Sea, which is a major strategic waterway for trade and oil shipments to Japan and Korea, has been the focus of a maritime dispute which has continued now for over six decades, with competing claims from China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia and Brunei. Recent...ly China has become more assertive in pressing its claims - harassing Vietnamese and Philippine fishing boats, publicising its claims more prominently in maps and in other ways, and threatening to board ships within the twelve-nautical-mile zone surrounding the islands that China claims. All of this is unsettling, with the United States supporting the Philippines, to which it has treaty obligations, and developing security ties with Vietnam which it views as a check upon China. This book examines the conflict potential of the current dispute, discusses how the main claimants and the United States view the issue, and assesses the prospects for a resolution of the problem.

              Negotiating with North Korea: The Six Party Talks and the Nuclear Issue (Hardback)

              The North Korean nuclear threat has created an enormous amount of apprehension in the international community in recent years. In 2003, the Six Party Talks brought together the US, China, Russia, Japan as well as South and North Korea to negotiate a multilateral resolution of thi...s nuclear issue. This book examines this multilateral attempt, and will look at the Six Party Talks as a study of multilateralism, differentiating it from empirical studies on the Korean peninsula. The author discusses the positions of the major players in regard to the Korean Peninsula in terms of their views of multilateralism and their willingness to commit themselves to it. The book goes to question why multilateralism failed to achieve its stated purpose in this instance, and examines how this failure can be resolved in the future.

              This book explores the very latest developments in the South China Sea maritime dispute. It examines the South China Sea as an arena for geo-strategic competition between China and the United States and why the dispute is so important for regional and global geopolitics. It outli...nes the most recent developments in the sea itself, and assesses the role of ASEAN and the current views of the contesting claimants. It considers the position of countries from outside the region, India as well as Japan, surveys military and naval developments, and examines confidence building, preventive diplomacy and dispute resolution measures. The book concludes by highlighting the points of greatest risk and by discussing how the situation is likely to develop going forward.

              This book, first published in 1986, focuses on the activity of the Soviet Union in Southeast Asia and the effects of Soviet policy on the region since 1969. In particular, Leszek Busynski examines the rivalry between the Soviet Union and China, Soviet presence in Vietnam, and the... responsive efforts of surrounding regions towards collective security. U.S. policy in the region is a key consideration, particularly in terms of American attempts to both placate China and encourage Japan to assist in the defence of the region. With a concluding assessment of regional trends and possible outcomes, this is an important and valuable work for students and scholars with an interest in the history and politics of international diplomacy in Southeast Asia.
