    Title: Asian Waters The Struggle over the Indo-Pacific & the Challenge to American Power
    Author: HAWKSLEY HUMPHREY

    The fractious relationship between China and the United States will be a central issue for the coming decades, and no region is as hotly contested, as the Indo-Pacific. At its heart is an intensifying rivalry between the autocratic and democratic systems of government marked by the disputed South China Sea where China has built military bases in open violation of international law. At stake is the survival of the current rules-based world order. In AsianWaiters, award-winning BBC journalist and Asia specialist Humphrey Hawksley breaks down the tensions that he has followed throughout this vast and volatile region for years. He joins dots that include Americas rise as the predominant Pacific power to Sino-US trade wars, threats against Taiwan, war on the Korean peninsula, Japan's role in protecting democracy in Asia, and much more. With vivid storytelling, concise history, and pointed arguments, Asian Waters is a must-read for anyone interested in global politics.
