This study examines how and why a continental-oriented China shifted its maritime strategic orientation. Following the end of the Cold War, China's grand strategy shifted from landward security to seaward security, and maritime security interests gradually become the most essential part of China's strategic rationale. In general, contemporary China's national security strategy is closely connected with its maritime strategy and with its comprehensive security plan for its economy, its energy supplies and its sovereignty. According to China's view of its security environment, the traditional territorial scramble is changing from control of the land to the control of territorial waters, of maritime strategic resources, and of critical sea lanes. As a result, maritime economic competition has become a key focus for many nations. As a consequence, this study asks: 'In order to shape a Sino-centric maritime security environment for China's rising sea power, how has Beijing's approach to maritime strategic expansion shifted from one of military antagonism toward one of strategic coexistence in the region'?
