About this book

This book explores Eurasia’s growing embrace of its maritime geography from the Indian Ocean to Pacific Asia and the Arctic. In an age of climate change, the melting of the Arctic will transform Eurasia’s importance, in addition to influencing the political, economic, and military dynamics across Eurasia’s main maritime regions. These emerging shifts have already begun to alter maritime trade and investment patterns, and thus the global political economy. It also creates a rising threat to the current status quo of world order that has long been dominated by the Atlantic World. This edited volume showcases some of the world’s leading experts and examines Eurasia from a saltwater perspective, analyzing its main maritime spaces in a threefold manner—as avenue, as arena, as source—to show the significance of this geostrategic change and why it matters for the future of the world’s oceans.

Reviews

“This book should transform our traditional understanding of global politics and economics. Viewing the oceans around the Eurasian land mass as avenues, arenas, and sources, the fourteen authors trace the consequences of global warming for the military, economic, and security of the major players. It is a worthy tribute to John Curtis Perry, the path-breaking scholar in this field.” (George R. Packard, Dean Emeritus, The Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, USA)

“This path-breaking collection of essays introduces some of the planet’s most critical geographies and environments in rich detail and with thoughtful analytical rigor. Coursing spatially through Eurasia’s three primary maritime regions—the Indian Ocean, Pacific Asia, and the Arctic—this volume probes diverse security and economic challenges facing the world’s navies and merchant ships. Skillfully edited by Geoffrey F. Gresh, Eurasia’s Maritime Rise and Global Security provides measured consideration of a variety of international and national protocols that attempt to mediate national and private aspirations on these seas.” (Alexis Dudden, Professor of History, University of Connecticut, USA)
