ChinaÂs military transformation is one of the major geo-strategic developments of the 21st Century. Billions of dollars are being spent modernizing The PeopleÂs Liberation Army (PLA) as China seeks to upgrade and expand its military capabilities to rival the US.
In this cutting-edge analysis, You Ji, a leading expert on ChinaÂs military affairs, explores the changes taking places within the PLA today, covering its ground, aerospace and maritime forces, its ability to meet asymmetric threats, and the growing role played by the PeopleÂs Armed Police in quelling dissent in China. He shows how these transformations in personnel, technology and strategic goals are slowly driving a wedge between ChinaÂs two most powerful institutions. Until recently, relations between the CCP and PLA were harmonious, but as the PLA becomes increasingly professionalized and autonomous so its unconditional loyalty to the ruling Party may weaken. The changing relationship between the CCP and PLA, he argues, is likely to have profound implications for ChinaÂs own political development and the balance of power in the Asia-Pacific region.
Comprehensive and incisive, this timely book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the nature and consequences of ChinaÂs military rise.
