Reviews

"The Pacific Islands in China's Grand Strategy: Small States, Big Games makes timely, original contributions to the literature on China's growing political and economic influence in the developing world. The book examines both China's grand strategy or geopolitical objectives and its engagement in the Pacific Island region. The author has made excellent use of Chinese, Taiwanese, US, Australian, and other sources, integrates the information well, and provides original research and analysis in several important areas, including China's grand strategy, the China-Taiwan diplomatic rivalry in the Pacific, and the history of China and Chinese in the region." - Thomas Lum, specialist in Asian Affairs, Congressional Research Service, Library of Congress
