This book, which brings together leading international scholars of maritime security, and also strategic thinkers from within Taiwan itself, examines a wide range of questions concerning Taiwans perception of the naval threat from mainland China, and how Taiwans navy and naval strategic thinking is responding, including discussions of the strength of Taiwans naval forces, mainland Chinas claims and ambitions in the South China Sea, and the controversial question of Theatre Missile Defence.
