Power Geopolitics in the Pacific Age: East Asia, the United Nations, the United States and Micronesia at the Edge of the 21st Century, 1991-2001
Power Geopolitics in the Pacific Age: East Asia, the United Nations, the United States and Micronesia at the Edge of the 21st Century, 1991–2001 is not only a historical review of the Pacific Rim and Pacific Islands throughout the 1990s, but also a prognostication of the entire area for the coming century.
C. D. Bay-Hansen is a seventy-four-year-old fisheries writer who was born in Norway and raised in England, New England, and New York. Although he attended a posh Eastern prep school as a teenager, Bay-Hansen found the time to work on an Israeli kibbutz (summer of '61) and on a Norwegian cargo ship (summer of '63), sailing to and from South America. After a US Army hitch during the later 1960s, Bay-Hansen eventually returned to college. He earned his BA at Seattle Pacific University in 1978 and his MA (in Pacific history) at the University of Hawai'i in 1981. An “empty-nester” with three adult children, Bay-Hansen presently lives in Port Angeles, Washington, where he has resided with his wife since 1987.
