Reflecting a contemporary model of the epic old Sino- Japanese rift which has been continuing since 19th century, the book meticulously presents worldwide manoeuvres in the process of retention over this stretch of water-lands of South-East Asia. The archipelago named as ‘SENKAKU’ lies more or less in the middle of three contesting countries – China, Japan and Taiwan, for the possession over this group of islands. The book deliberately sheds light on the complicated tandem shared amongst these East-Asian Countries. The author Dr Monika Chansoria, a senior fellow at the CLAWS, uncovers the facts behind this rift for the possession of the stretch of water body.
The sea is meant to be the golden route for exporting and importing commodities in the international market apart from that it provides the best spot for practising naval military drills as well. Backed up by several elaborative studies, the book is the subtle replica of the current scenario of the South East Asia Sea. Overall, the book is a good read.
