View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Combining a close knowledge of Asia and an ability to tap Chinese-language sources with naval combat experience and expertise in sea-power theory, the authors assess how the rise of Chinese sea power will affect U.S. maritime strategy in Asia. They argue that China has laid the groundwork for a sustained challenge to American primacy in maritime Asia, and to defend this hypothesis they look back to Alfred Thayer Mahan's sea-power theories, now popular with the Chinese. The book considers how strategic thought about the sea shapes Beijing's deliberations and compares China's geostrategic predicament to that of the Kaiser's Germany a century ago. It examines the Chinese navy's operational concepts, tactics, and capabilities and appraises China's missile force. The authors conclude that China now presents a challenge to America's strategic position of such magnitude that Washington must compete in earnest.

Review:

"This is must reading. In their landmark RED STAR OVER THE PACIFIC, Toshi Yoshihara and James Holmes warned us Chinese sea power is here to stay and could veer toward aggression. Their warning was prophetic. With this second edition they help us prepare for the competitive future they foresaw." -- Admiral Jim Stavridis, author of SEA POWER and Dean, Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University

"In RED STAR OVER THE PACIFIC (2010), James Holmes and Toshi Yoshihara presciently postulated China's game plan to become a serious oceangoing power. In this edition, they meticulously analyze how since then, China is innovatively expanding its envelope of maritime dominance in the Pacific. This is not to be missed." --Admiral Nirmal Verma, former Chief of Indian Naval Staff and Chief of Naval Operations Fellow, U.S. Naval War College

"For many years now, James Holmes and Toshi Yoshihara have been the go-to pair for both a granular and strategic understanding of the American-Chinese naval rivalry. Their new edition of Red Star Over the Pacific, a seminal work when first published, will be a requirement for everybody in the field." --Robert D. Kaplan author of, The Return of Marco Polo's World: War, Strategy, and American Interests in the Twenty-first Century

"Based on meticulous use of Chinese language and other such authoritative sources and using Mahanian thinking as a frame of analysis, this books explains China's naval rise rather than just documents its latest ships and submarines. Setting the new Chinese navy firmly in its domestic and international context, the authors dissect China's naval aspirations and analyse their likely success and strategic consequence. Anyone plotting responses to China's naval rise must read this excellent book." --Geoffrey Till, Professor Emeritus and Chairman of the Corbett Centre for Maritime Policy, King's College London, and author of Seapower

"Yoshihara and Holmes sounded an early alarm over China's strategic maritime competition in their seminal work, Red Star over the Pacific, 2nd Edition. Their prescient warning contributed to the material shift in U.S. national security strategy in 2017 recognizing the risk and reality of great power competition in the maritime domain in the Indo-Pacific. Their updated insights in the Second Edition have implications for the evolution of U.S. maritime strategy, naval fleet architecture, and joint forces doctrine for the U.S. and regional allies that will reverberate across the global commons."--Philip M. Bilden, Member, Chief of Naval Operations Executive Panel, Vice Chairman, Naval War College Foundation

"The renowned British geopolitical theorist Halford Mackinder wrote that great statesmanship requires 'geographical capacity' and 'an insight into the minds of other nations'.... American statesmen who want to develop these qualities to approach the 21st-century world should consult the new edition of Red Star Over the Pacific, written by Toshi Yoshihara of the US Centre for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, and James Holmes of the Naval War College in the state of Rhode Island. The book combines brilliant geopolitical insight, a careful review of Chinese naval writings, and a thorough knowledge of Chinese and American naval weapons systems, tactics and strategies - both historical and contemporary." --South China Morning Post

"Red Star Over the Pacific should be read and studied not just by American policymakers and the American public, but also by the statesmen and people of the Asia-Pacific region, including those in China." --Asian Review of Books

"This book is entirely readable." --McCall Digest

"An excellent analysis of Chinese maritime strategic thinking. It should be read not only by politicians and academics but by naval officers all over the world too." --German Maritime Competence Net

"This [is an] extraordinarily detailed work." --The Washington Times
