The maritime region of the Pacific is the last remaining arena of the Cold War and has yet to experience the increasing political relaxation of Europe and Asia. Aggravated by a rapid military technology race, Pacific strategies, deployments and alliances differ markedly from those in Europe and the Atlantic. They pose particular difficulties for any proposed arms talks. "Superpower maritime strategy in the Pacific" provides a critical overview of the present military confrontation. Soviet and American objectives are assessed independently from the perspectives of China, Japan, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, all of which have much at stake. The book argues that if the Pacific maritme region is to fulfill its promise of energy and economic growth the damands of the regional powers for arms control must be heard.
