There is no doubt that China is on the rise in Asia, Africa, South America, the Caribbeans, and even the Antarctica and the Arctic, this rise can be partly attributed to Chinas activities in the South Pacific. This book will pinpoint Chinas involvement in the South Pacific within the context of Chinas wider foreign policy and the challenges it poses to the traditional dominant powers of the region -- the China-Taiwan rivalry has helped to seriously alter the balance of traditional influence in the South Pacific where China is now one of the largest aid donors in the region, squeezing out Australia, New Zealand, and the United States, both in terms of funding and influence.
