China shares borders with 20 other countries. Each of these neighbors has its own national interests, and in some cases, these include territorial and maritime jurisdictional claims in places that China also claims. Most of these 20 countries have had a history of border conflicts with China; some of them never amicably settled. This book brings together some of the foremost historians, geographers, political scientists, and legal scholars on modern Asia to examine each of China's twenty land or sea borders.

This book is a welcome and timely addition to that debate. ... An important contribution to the debate over China's rise and its implications for regional relations. The book raises many thought-provoking and important questions, and is a concise and useful addition for any class on China's foreign policy." --Contemporary Southeast Asia
