Overview

Dangerous Ground: The Spratly Islands and U.S. Interests and Approaches (Enlarged Edition) by Clarence J. Bouchat, Strategic Studies Institute, U. S. Army War College

The Spratly Islands warrant better understanding by U.S. policymakers in order to discuss nuanced responses to the region's challenges. To attain that needed understanding, legal aspects of customary and modern laws are explored to analyze the differences between competing maritime and territorial claims, and why and how the parties involved stake rival claims or maritime legal rights. Throughout the policies of the United States are examined through its conflicted interests in the region. Recommendations for how the United States should engage these issues, a more appropriate task than trying to solve the disputes outright, are then offered.
