This book offers an innovative approach to the analysis of the current crisis in the South China Sea. Moving beyond the spirit of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), the mechanisms of which are limited to physical geography, it demonstrates how epistemological insights from the field of critical realist philosophy can reveal the importance of cultural and structural conditioning processes in social interactions, processes which shape the conditions for the emergence of crisis points along a spectrum of conflict and cooperation. The potential for conflict resolution and the emergence of new regions in Pacific Asia much depends on the nature of such interactions at many levels (political-economic, semiotic and cultural) based on perceptions of what constitutes the "common" versus a Sinicised version of "Lebensraum".

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The volume emphasizes the importance of placing research on the South China Sea in a critical realist framework ... . A comprehensive bibliography will cater to serious researchers and academics interested in probing deeper into the depths of the multiple dynamics of the South China Sea conflict. The volume has a collection of excellent maps and even archaic old maps of historical importance that have been nicely incorporated with the text." (Saikat Kumar Basu, South Asian Time, southasiantime.com, April, 2016)
