The future orientation and capabilities of the Chinese military, of great significance for policymakers, journalists, and scholars alike, is already a major issue in U.S. foreign policy and is likely to become more so over time. This volume, the most up-to-date assessment by specialists on the Chinese military, pays particular attention to the future orientation of the People's Liberation Army. It addresses the Chinese military leadership, defense doctrine and military readiness, preparations for high-tech warfare acquisitions, military expenditure, military logistics, the scientific and technological base for defense procurement, and China's security concerns in Northeast Asia.
