China Maritime Studies

The China Maritime Studies are extended research projects that the Editor, the Director of the China Maritime Studies Institute (CMSI), the Dean of the Center for Naval Warfare Studies (CNWS), and the President of the Naval Warfare College consider to be of particular interest to policy makers, scholars, and analysts. The Naval War College Press prepares and publishes the studies for CMSI.
