The Maritime Defence of China Ming General Qi Jiguang and Beyond by Y. H. Teddy Sim

The Maritime Defence of China Ming General Qi Jiguang and Beyond


The Maritime Defence of China Ming General Qi Jiguang and Beyond by Y. H. Teddy Sim

This edited volume explores the larger maritime and security environment during and beyond the time of Chinese military general Qi Jiguang's enterprise. While serving as a historiography and biography of Qi Jiguang, the book also elaborates on the doctrinal applications of his ideas. Essays in this volume contribute to the field of China studies in light of the increased frequency of news relating to the maritime and military affairs in the region in the post-2000 period. It provides a specialist perspective to the uneven study of Qi Jiguang and maritime/military studies, while also satisfying the desire of the layman to understand the current political security situation in East Asia in the context of the longer term historical developments.
