Does anyone have a link to a detailed legal PRC statement of claim to that whole area of the South China Sea?

I don't think there is one single such piece, rather a continual roster of insinuation and inference establishing their current position.

However, here are some interesting antecedents:

if it's ROC territory, then it must be PRC territory, by their logic.

also, Wikipedia notes that "In 1958, the People's Republic of China issued a declaration defining its territorial waters, which encompassed the Spratly Islands." but without a reference.

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.
