New military history research: Naval power in medieval Asia, and the Algerian National Liberation Front

A research article abstract in the Journal of Southeast Asian Studies addresses the development of naval power around the Melaka Strait from AD 500 to 1500.  The author examines how this power evolved alongside political development of the communities that existed around the strait.  Chin and India appeared to have dominated the regional development around the strait.
The Journal of North African Studies offers up an article abstract on the Chinese and Algerian alliance that began in 1958.  The author of the article discusses the ways in which the alliance helped China legitimize its Great leap Forward campaign and how the Algerian National Liberation Front used the alliance to legitimize that party’s recent military control over Algeria.
