WEEK 1: China's south china sea claims

Here is the download link for the PDF.

Key Points:
-- China's claim to the South China Sea evolved after 1914.
-- No formal claim until 1935, in response to the French Claims
-- The 9/11 dash line first came out in 1947, from ROC government
-- the original names of the South China Sea islands were English names, because there were no Chinese names
-- no maps from China show any South China Sea islands as Chinese until 1909.

Remember, quiz on geography.
... if you get number 1 wrong, you're in trouble!
