The relative rise of China is likely to lead a major shift in the world’s strategic architecture, which the United States will need to accommodate. For the outcome to be generally beneficial, China needs to be dissuaded from hegemonic aspirations and retained as a cooperative partner in the world system. This will require a range of potentially conflicting thrusts in U.S. policy.

Since the Asia-Pacific Region is primarily a maritime theater, the U.S. Navy, Marines, and Air Force will need to play a leading role. The U.S. Army, nonetheless, will have a substantial supporting and facilitating role.


GEOFFREY TILL, Dean of Academic Studies at the United Kingdom Command and Staff College from 1997-2006, is now Emeritus Professor of Maritime Studies at King’s College London and Chairman of the Corbett Centre for Maritime Policy Studies. Since 2009, he has also been a Visiting Professor at the Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Singapore.  He is also Adjunct Research Professor at the National Institute for the Study of the South China Sea, Haikou, Hainan, China. In addition to many articles and chapters on various aspects of maritime strategy and policy defense, Professor Till is the author of a number of books. His most recent is Seapower: A Guide for the 21st Century, Third Ed., January 2013, for Routledge. He edited, with Patrick Bratton, Sea Power and the Asia-Pacific: The Triumph of Neptune?; and an Adelphi Book for the International Institute for Strategic Studies, Naval Expansion in Asia: An Arms Race in the Making? Both were published by Routledge as paperbacks in 2013 and 2014. In 2013, with Jane Chan, he edited Naval Modernisation in South-East Asia: Nature, Causes and Consequences. His Understanding Victory: Naval Operations from Trafalgar to the Falklands is to be published by ABC-Clio in 2014. Professor Till is currently working on a number of other projects on maritime security in the Indo-Pacific region. His works have been translated into 12 languages.
