A variety of viewpoints is offered in this timely analysis of China's economy and the future shape of Beijing's energy consumption. The authors, all noted authorities in the fields of economics, diplomacy, energy, and defense, consider an unprecedented range of influences and factors to avoid the limitations of looking at the subject myopically or with political bias. They conclude that while energy insecurity could eventually lead to an arms race at sea or even a naval conflict that neither side wants, there is ample room for Sino-American energy dialogue and cooperation in the maritime domain. AUTHOR: Gabriel B. Collins, Andrew S. Erickson, and Lyle J. Goldstein are professors and specialists on China at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, RI and foundong members of the Navy's China Maritime Studies Institute. Willam S. Murray, a retired naval officer who qualified to command nuclear submarines and made Cold War deployments in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, is an associate research professor at the Naval War College. 54 illustrations
