This volume examines the national maritime doctrines as
the nuclear weapons developments at sea of the four major powers in the As
ia-Pacific, namely, China, India, Japan and the United States, to see if the evolving dynamic is a cooperative or a competitive one. In particular, the volume looks at the evolving paradigms of maritime transformation in strategy and technology; the emergent new maritime doctrines and evolving force postures in the naval orders of battle; the role and operations of nuclear navies in the As
ia-Pacific; and the implications and impact of nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles and sea-bas
ed missile defence responses in the region.
