China’s rise on the world’s oceans is attracting wide attention and may ultimately restructure the global balance of power during the course of the 21st century. Many books have described this phenomenon and the significant strategic implications that flow from Beijing’s rapid maritime development. However, the subject of whether and how to potentially integrate a stronger China into a global maritime security partnership has not been adequately explored. Delving into a variety of vital domains of contemporary maritime security, American and Chinese contributors to this edited volume illustrate that despite recent turbulence in U.S.-China military relations, substantial shared interests should enable extensive maritime security cooperation, as the two maritime great powers attempt to reach an understanding of “competitive coexistence.” China’s reaction to the United States’ new maritime strategy, for instance, will significantly impact its success. Based on the premise that preventing wars is as important as winning wars, this new U.S. strategy embodies a historic reassessment of the international system and how the United States can best pursue its interests in cooperation with other nations. But for professionals to structure cooperation effectively, they warn, Washington and Beijing must create sufficient political and institutional space.

This is the fourth book in the series “Studies in Chinese Maritime Development” published jointly by the China Maritime Studies Institute and the Naval Institute Press.


“At a time when many are talking about a possible China-U.S. naval conflict as part of their strategic rivalry, this path-breaking volume offers an alternative approach. The authors present a blueprint for pursuing shared U.S.-China interests and cooperation in the maritime domain. It is a must-read for practitioners and strategists alike who wish to see a new partnership between the two maritime giants.”

–Prof. Wang Jisi, Dean, School of International Studies, Peking University

“If you think the U.S.-China relationship is the foremost of our bilateral relationships, and if issues on the seas of East Asia give you pause, then this book is for you. Events give it timeliness; the exceptional quality and depth of research give it permanence. This comprehensive set of thoughts, background, and actionable recommendations belongs on the desk of military and diplomatic decision-makers, as well as scholars of the U.S.-China way ahead.”

–Admiral Joseph W. Prueher, USN (Ret.), Former Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Pacific Command, and Ambassador to China

“In the maritime strategic tensions more prominent than before between China and the United States, this excellently edited collection is essential because it focuses on the hopeful maritime security partnership between them. It is definitely among the few best books on this topic, a topic with enormous implications for the security and prosperity of the 21st-century world.”

–Dr. Shi Yinhong, Professor of International Relations and Strategy, and Director, Center for American Studies, Renmin University of China

“The opportunities and challenges confronting the United States and China in the maritime domain in the years ahead are of great importance to those two countries and to the entire Asia-Pacific region. Thoughtful examination and analysis of those opportunities and challenges, as done in this publication, will provide a critical foundation for decision-makers as they address stability and security issues for the United States and China.”

–Admiral Timothy J. Keating, USN (Ret.), Former Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Pacific Command

“A timely, penetrating analysis of the transformation of contemporary power relations at sea. Chinese and American maritime interests are destined to affect their relations, and hence their cooperative partnership is of vital importance to a rule-binding security order in the world.”

–Dr. Shen Dingli, Executive Dean, Institute of International Studies, and Director, Center for American Studies, Fudan University

“对中美海上关系进行了透彻的分析,提出中美未来的合作前景。是一本不错的好书。” [Offers a thorough analysis of Sino-American relations at sea, and suggests the prospects for Sino-U.S. cooperation in the future. It is a good book.]

“These essays bear close reading because they faithfully reflect the thinking and policies of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) and the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), which comprises all of China’s armed forces.”

—Richard Halloran, Parameters 42.1 (Spring 2012): 118-19.

“an impressive series… notable in containing contributions from several Chinese academics.”

—Conrad Waters, Review of Four Naval Institute Press Books, “Naval Books of the Year,” Warship 2012: 190-91.

“It is unusual for a book on military affairs to be suffused with optimism, but this one is optimistic as well as interesting. It consists of papers presented at a Conference at the US Naval War College in December 2007, with some added later. The authors and editors do a good job of integrating and relating subsequent events up to March 2010. …undergraduates, graduate students, and most China scholars will find this book interesting and informative.”

–Harlan W. Jencks, The China Quarterly 208 (December 2011): 1034–36.

“An oft-heard refrain from international relations specialists, as well as within Track II fora, is that maritime confidence-building measures and maritime cooperation are necessary to lessen tensions. Indeed they are, but the difficulty is moving from the “general” exhortation for cooperation to the “specific” practicalities of what is achievable. And that is the main utility of this book—it is written by practitioners who discuss issues and proffer options that can be used.”

Andrew Forbes, “China and Sea Power in the Twenty-First Century,” International Journal of Maritime History 23.1 (June 2011): 341-46.

“The US Naval Institute Press has, along with the China Maritime Studies Institute at the US Naval War College, published key studies on PRC maritime developments. … The new book by the two institutes, China, the United States and 21st Century Sea Power: Defining a Maritime Security Partnership, takes understanding of the PRC’s maritime ambitions to the next level.”

Gregory R. Copley, “Focus on PLA(N),” Essential Reading: Important New Strategic Literature, Defense & Foreign Affairs Strategic Policy 4 (2011): 16.

“Chinese sea power is very much a concern of U.S. naval strategists and factors in the deliberations of the United States as it attempts to balance its force structure to fight and win high-intensity wars as well as low intensity conflicts. … The[se] papers explore the issue of integrating China into a global maritime security partnership.”

–Richard R. Burgess, Managing Editor, “Books Detail Chinese Naval Strategy,” Seapower 54.7 (July 2011), 49.

“Each year there is one book that stands out from the pack. China, the United States and 21st Century Sea Power… needs to be read by every member of the Australian Naval Institute, not only because it provides a blue-print for naval policy in the Asia-Pacific Century but also because it is one of the few authoritative works that discusses a cooperative alternative to the sensationalist threat driven responses to the rise of China.  …a positive, balanced, thought provoking, and timely study which will no doubt impact upon the relationship between China and the United States over the next twenty years. … This book is highly recommended.”

Gregory P. Gilbert, Air Power Development Centre, Headmark: Journal of the Australian Naval Institute (May 2011).

“The essays, written by experts on both sides of the Pacific, present varied views typical of the spirit of academic freedom that prevails at the Naval War College (despite its governmental sponsorship) and serves as the bedrock of the Naval Institute’s long-respected open forum.”

Lt. Cdr. Thomas J. Cutler, USN (Ret.), Notable Naval Books of 2010,” U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 137:5 (May 2011): 64-69.

“a fine and very highly recommended read, not to be missed.”

–“The Military Shelf,” Wisconsin Book Watch, Midwest Book Review 6.2 (February 2011).

“This volume presents an analysis of how the United States’ new maritime strategy will affect the international system, and particularly how it will affect relations with China. It argues that extensive US–China maritime-security cooperation is both possible and desirable.”

–“Brief Notices: Asia-Pacific,” Survival 53.1 (February–March 2011): 199-200.

“The attempt by the good folks at the US Naval War College should be applauded – the impact of this important work will move from academia to shape the policy between two great nations and half the world.”

国家海洋局肩负在中国专属经济区巡航的职责,拥有相对庞大的舰船和飞机数量。在2006年,有报道称国家海洋局拥有21艘舰船,吨位在1000吨和4000吨之间。据最近一份关于国家海洋局南海船队的报告称,这一船队有11艘船,据报道,其中6艘排水量超过1000吨。国家海洋局南海分局装备有一架直升机和两架固定翼飞机。一份2008年的报道称中国海监共有9架飞机,以及超过200艘巡逻艇。最近,国家海洋局人编至少3艘新的大型舰船,其中包括“海监46”、“海监51”和“海监83”船。根据2009年的报道,“海监83”船是中国海监最大的舰船,长98米。这艘3400吨排水量的舰船建造于江南造船厂,据称造价达2200万美元,并装载一架直升机。  尽管海事局在执行搜救任务时使用飞机,国家海洋局也装备飞机这一事实使其明显有别于中国的另外一支没有飞机的海上执法队伍——BCD(中国公安边防警察部队)。然而,同中国公安边防警察部队一样,国家海洋局近期接收了几艘中国海军退役军舰。报道称,“海监20”和“海监32”改装自中国人民解放军海军猎潜舰艇,将在渤海执行巡逻任务。关于国家海洋局在中国专属经济区执行巡逻任务,宁波学校研究报告直言不讳地指出其装备方面的不足:“我国现有海洋执法巡逻舰艇装备的性能只能在领海和毗连区附近执勤,不能担负起专属经济区和大陆架的各类巡航任务。”另据报道,2006年,国务院指示国家海洋局启动东海巡航任务。这些扩展的维权行动包括了国家海洋局在东海区日常的4架飞机和6艘船只的巡航。2009年有报道指出,中国海监在2007年启动了南海海域南端的日常巡航。在2001年至2007年,中国海监报道,在中国专属经济区总共发生15000起违法案件,其中10000起被提起公诉。根据一份2006年的报告,国家海洋局已经会同中国公安边防警察在北部湾海域采取联合行动,并期望在其他地区采取类似行动。国家海洋局的消息据实报道了会同中国军队的行动情况。事事实上,2008年10月有媒体报道称,中国海监总队副总队长孙书贤讲道:“(中国海监)力量如果能升级至预备役部队,将使巡逻时的装备更加精良……当前海监的防御能力还显不足。”类似的信息出现在2009年9月的一篇中国报道中,报道证明了国家海洋局和美国测量船之间的多次互动。这篇报道称,国家海洋局的舰船需要更先进的传感设备和电子作战技术应对美国的军用侦察设备。2010年4月新型海监小艇的照片显示出中国的确在对其新型舰艇进行武器装备——这与其过去的做法完全不同。  ……
