"Asia's Cauldron: The South China Sea and the End of a Stable Pacific"

Robert Kaplan

About the Program

Robert Kaplan talks about China's efforts to dominate the South China Sea, a body of water that has huge oil and gas reserves and is used by more than half the world's merchant fleets.  He says that aggressive efforts by China in this area could lead to a conflict that will involve the U.S.  During this event hosted by the Center for a New American Security, Mr. Kaplan is in conversation with NPR's Steve Inskeep.
