Conflict in the South China Sea by Bernard D. ColeLibrary: Hagerstown (Central) Washington County Free Library
The South China Sea is a locus of competing territorial claims, and China its most vocal claimant. Beijing’s interest has intensified disputes with other countries in the region in recent years, especially since China has increased its naval presence. Despite rising international pressure, including an unfavorable ruling by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, China staunchly defends its policies in the region. Preventing tensions from boiling over is a matter of careful diplomacy.
Great Decisions 2017 is sponsored by the League and the library. There will be eight weekly meetings at 7:00 p.m. starting on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 in room 334 of the Washington County Free Library, 100 South Potomac Street in Hagerstown, and continuing for the remaining 8 months on the fourth Tuesday Every month.
