Abstract

125 in nuclear missiles since the 1950s this doesn't make China a naval power, or in Muller's expression, "an important factor in the strategic equation in the West Pacific." (Asiaweek, November 23, 1984, p. 60). Spurr has a point, as of 1983 or 1984, but Commander Muller had correctly identified a clear-cut trend that cannot be denied, i.e., that there has been tremendous growth in China's maritime prowess in recent years. And this trend continues. George Lauriat has noted that China's merchant fleet has expanded at an "incredible" rate during the past six years (1978-83), and that plans are underfoot to build a new fleet that would double its dead weight tonnage by 1990 (Far Eastern Economic Review, February 16, 1984, p. 35). Also of interest since the completion of this book is the revival of the Minsheng Shipping Company, which had been the largest conglomerate in China before its nationalization by the PRC govern- ment. With its re-establishment Minsheng became the first large-scale private enter- prise in China since the revolution. Significantly, this is a company that can be ex- pected to contribute greatly to the goal of further developing China's maritime capabilities. Commander Muller's fine book
