"Red Star Over the Pacific is a timely, focused, and persuasive analysis of Chinese naval strategy that stands well above other works on the topic. The patient, solid scholarship and nuanced argumentation of the work offer a comprehensive perspective of Chinese strategic thinking and naval development and their ramifications for the United States. Although cautious in its language, the book leaves readers with a firm impression that not only is the balance of naval power in the Pacific steadily shifting against the United States, but also, more importantly, public maritime interest and naval intellectual power are shifting in ways that are potentially destabilizing for the region.... Red Star Over the Pacific fills a significant gap in military and strategic analysis between grand but often empty theories of international relations and overly detailed analysis of specific ships or weapons.... Casual readers, naval historians, military officers, and perhaps some Chinese readers should all benefit from this work, which is likely to become a benchmark text in a burgeoning field." -- Joint Force Quarterly
"Red Star Over the Pacific is the book to read to understand what China thinks of sea power (or what the United States thinks China thinks about sea power.)" -- International Journal of Military History
"...An interesting and thought provoking discussion of the rise of China's naval capabilities... thought provoking... This volume is an excellent read for those interested in Asia, maritime strategy, and geo-strategic questions." --, Waterline
". . . .A very useful volume. . . .Anyone with an interest in East Asian politics or maritime affairs will find it useful. . . . Recommended." --Choice
