The speaker shared insights from his new book, “Empire of the Winds The Global Role of Asia’s Great Archipelago”, which looks at two thousand plus years in the history of the now 400 million non-Chinese people who occupy most of the coasts of the South China, Java and Sulu seas. Their global role in sailing and trading puts China’s current claims into perspective.
