"The Fall and Rise of Navies in East Asia: Military Organizations, Domestic Politics, and Grand Strategy"
Journal Article, International Security, issue 2, volume 27
Eric Heginbotham traces the rise of East Asian navies since 1980 and explains the reasons for this development. Heginbotham holds that the political fortunes of East Asian naval forces have improved in the last two decades because they have allied themselves with regimes that support liberal economic and social policies.
