Every Marine has heard stories about the legendary China Marines who served in China before the Second World War. Many of these stories feature the small group of Horse Marines stationed at the American Legation in Peiping who patrolled the city streets and the surrounding Chinese countryside. Riding small, tough, Mongolian ponies and armed with their Model 1913 Patton sabres, these Horse Marines protected American missionaries and businessmen from bands of roving Chinese bandits. The Horse Marines, known as the Mounted Detachment, were considered to be the elite of all China Marines. Illustrated with over 420 rare and previously unpublished Horse Marine items and photographs, including drawings and watercolours by Colonel John W Thomason, this book offers a unique perspective into the life of John R Angstadt, one China Horse Marine.
Sustainable Marine Resource Utilization in China: A Comprehensive Evaluation thoroughly analyzes the basic conditions and status quo of the sustainable utilization of Chinese marine resources and its effects on economic and social development. This book constructs evaluation models for marine ecological carrying capacity, marine resource utilization benefits, and management levels with the application of many methods, including the super efficiency model, ecological footprint model, entropy method and system dynamics. The principles and practical experiences of the sustainable utilization of Chinese marine resources are also summed up. This book provides a needed resource for university professors, students and researchers interested in the management of marine resources and the environment, and particularly those who are concerned with China's marine development. Analyzes the coordinated coupling relationship between marine resource utilization and the economy Grapples with the social effects of sustainable utilization in China’s coastal areas Assesses China’s coastal marine resource management levels and explores the quality differences in sustainable resource utilization and management Provides a comprehensive framework for the quantification, assessment and evaluation of marine resources and economic systems that can be applied to any marine economy in the world
This volume focuses on the establishment and development of China's marine legal system in the context of the new law of the sea centered on the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, which China ratified in 1996.
This book systematically introduces the petroleum geological characteristics and exploration theory of marine strata in China. On the basis of four major basins, 14 typical cases have been studied in which 13 cases are from conventional oil and gas fields and 1 case is from shale gas field, along with their hydrocarbon generation, migration, accumulation, and distribution characteristics. The book provides a reference for geologists around the globe to understand the exploration history, methods and advances in marine strata oil and gas exploration in China.
The approach throughout is both legal multi-disciplinary and comparative. The relevant international conventions are examined (particularly the 'Bunker Convention' of 2008), with particular attention to their implementation in China and Europe, as well as the independent US regime. In addition, detailed empirical data from well-known case studies provide important insights into the working of international and national prevention and compensation mechanisms.
As one of the eighteen field-specific reports comprising the comprehensive scope of the strategic general report of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, this sub-report addresses long-range planning for developing science and technology in the field of marine science. They each craft a roadmap for their sphere of development to 2050. In their entirety, the general and sub-group reports analyze the evolution and laws governing the development of science and technology, describe the decisive impact of science and technology on the modernization process, predict that the world is on the eve of an impending S&T revolution, and call for China to be fully prepared for this new round of S&T advancement. Based on the detailed study of the demands on S&T innovation in China's modernization, the reports draw a framework for eight basic and strategic systems of socio-economic development with the support of science and technology, work out China's S&T roadmaps for the relevant eight basic and strategic systems in line with China's reality, further detail S&T initiatives of strategic importance to China's modernization, and provide S&T decision-makers with comprehensive consultations for the development of S&T innovation consistent with China's reality. Supported by illustrations and tables of data, the reports provide researchers, government officials and entrepreneurs with guidance concerning research directions, the planning process, and investment. Founded in 1949, the Chinese Academy of Sciences is the nation's highest academic institution in natural sciences. Its major responsibilities are to conduct research in basic and technological sciences, to undertake nationwide integrated surveys on natural resources and ecological environment, to provide the country with scientific data and consultations for government's decision-making, to undertake government-assigned projects with regard to key S&T problems in the process of socio-economic development, to initiate personnel training, and to promote China's high-tech enterprises through its active engagement in these areas.
On 11 November 2001,the People’s Republic of China officially became a member of the World Trade Organisation. During the preceding two decades China emerged as a major trading and maritime nation, has adopted more than twenty maritime related laws and has ratified most of the important international maritime conventions. Maritime Law and Policy in China contains new translations of all the major maritime laws of the People’s Republic of China together with detailed explanations of the rationale behind the legislation. A comprehensive examination of the Maritime Code 1992 is included as is a new translation of the Maritime Procedure Law of the People’s Republic of China 1999, which lays down the jurisdiction of the maritime courts in China and provides for matters such as arrest of ships, orders for security and maritime injunctions. China’s ratification of the international maritime conventions is also examined in detail. This title will be an indispensable reference work for maritime lawyers, marine insurers, P I Clubs, shipping companies and all trading companies conducting business with China.
Inspired by his granddaughter who is now also a US Marine, author Norman Albert now offers a biography that tells the story of his time as a marine after World War II in China. Little is generally known about the First Marine Corps Divisions duty during the time from 1945 to1947. Albert, nicknamed Yohouse while serving, recounts his memories of that period, when many marines were killed or wounded and taken prisoner by the Chinese Communist soldiers. In Yohouse from a Boot to a China Marine, Albert explains what it was like to be sent with his division to China to disarm the Japanese soldiers. The marines were caught between the Nationalist and Communist parties near the end of the Chinese Civil War, often serving as a buffer between the two. Although the Communists regularly attacked marine convoys for ammunition and supplies, luckily Alberts convoys remained safe. Including a copy of the North China Marine publication about the US Marines, this memoir recalls a little-known period in the history of that branch of service, including both their challenges and their triumphs.
Born into the peace and stability of the MidWest, the author's world was shattered by WWII.
