About This Book

This comprehensive study of the modernization efforts of the Chinese military focuses on the ground forces. In 1999, the military modernization programme of the Chinese People's Liberation Army that had been underway for 20 years accelerated and achieved a focus not seen in the previous two decades. Based primarily on Chinese sources, this book details the changes and key developments implemented since 1999 and puts them in the context of the many traditions that still remain. First-hand observations and three decades of military experience enable the author to draw disparate threads from official Chinese statements, documents and media reports into an integrated whole. This volume defines what forces make up the People's Liberation Army and examines in detail ground force organization and structure, personnel policies, doctrine and training, new equipment entering the force, and missions routinely undertaken in support of society.
