This new book addresses three key issues: What has changed in Chinese civil-military relations? What can account for changes? And what are the implications for Chinese security policy and strategic behavior?

It tackles these questions by keenly assessing civil-military dynamics in elite politics; such dynamics in national security and arms control policy; relations between commanders and political commissars; relations between the PLA and society; civil-military dynamics regarding defense economics and logistics; and such dynamics regarding dual-use technologies and defense industry.

These analyses build into the central theme that the emphasis of Chinese civil-military relations is shifting from politics to military tasks. This is an extremely important new development by a nation many predict to become a super power in the twenty-first century.

This is therefore essential reading for all students and scholars of strategic and security studies, Chinese studies and international relations.
