U. S. Conventional Forces and Nuclear Deterrence: A Chinese Case Study-9/1/06 CRS (PDF)


China: The Gathering Threat By Constantine Menges. Published April 15, 2005; Editorial Review at Amazon: In a book that is as certain to be as controversial as it is meticulously researched, a former special assistant to the president for National Security Affairs and senior official of the Central Intelligence Agency shows that the U.S. could be headed toward a nuclear face-off with communist China within four years. And it definitively reveals how China is steadily pursuing a stealthy, systematic strategy to attain geopolitical and economic dominance first in Asia and Eurasia, then possibly globally, within the next twenty. Using recently declassified documents, statements by Russian and Chinese leaders largely overlooked in the Western media, and groundbreaking analysis and investigative work, Menges explains China's plan thoroughly, exposing:

  • China's methods of economic control.
    • China's secret alliance with Russia and other anti-America nations, including North Korea.
      • China's growing military and nuclear power-over 90 ICBMs, many of them aimed at U.S. cities.
        • How China and Russia have been responsible for weaponizing terrorists bent on harming the U.S.
          • Damage caused by China's trade tactics (since 1990, we've lost 8 million jobs thanks to China trade surpluses).

Seeds of Fire Written by Gordon Thomas; tells of war preparations by China and their connections to 9\11. Former U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican under Clinton, Ray Flynn, has this to say: "'Seeds of Fire' is a book that every patriotic American - everyone who cares about the future of this country ... everyone who wants to know what goes on behind the scenes - must buy and read. This is THE book. Written by a highly experienced intelligence analyst, it is simply a MUST. You cannot ignore the warnings Gordon Thomas gives."

Mao: The Unknown Story. By Jung Chang and Jon Halliday; Knopf. 832 pp., $35 ($23.10 at the Amazon)
Mao: the ugly reality behind an icon-10/18/05 Christian Science Monitor Book Review, By Marjorie Kehe-- An exhaustively researched new biography offers surprising revisions to Chinese history-- It is hard to single out the most chilling aspect of Mao: The Unknown Story by Jung Changand Jon Halliday. To dive into this hefty new biography of China's "great Helmsman" is to feel alternately shocked, angry, and, finally, just plain sick at heart. The story of man's inhumanity to man is, of course, not new and much about Mao's life is already familiar to readers. But the level of detail offered by this exhaustively researched book (the labor of more than a decade for novelist Jung Chang and her husband Jon Halliday) creates a compelling portrait of Mao that will still shock many, as will a handful of revelations. ...
Showdown : Why China Wants War with the United States by Jed Babbin, Edward Timperlake; Amazon Reviewers: 1. "Showdown" is fascinating!: "Showdown" is an unusual book. In between being a well-documented description of China's emergence as a superpower and providing some practical ideas on how to avoid a war, the authors have included a series of fictional chapters describing scenarios of how war with China might erupt, be fought, and end. Though the fiction is as riveting as a Clancy novel (and in much the same style), the results aren't what you'd expect. There's not a lot of good news or chest-thumping over-the-top America can't be beat nonsense. We lose some, we tie some, and only win a couple. It's a terrific read, and a wake-up call as subtle as a bucket of ice water. 2. I could not put this book down!: I just finished reading "SHOWDOWN - Why China Wants War with the United States" and I could not put it down! SHOWDOWN presents different scenarios that could lead us to War with China in the next few years. Each scenario is very well presented; both well researched and very readable. The scary part is that these scenarios are very plausible, the facts are all there, and the evidence is well documented in the appendix. The United Sates and China could be at war in the very near future. ...
Enemies: How America's Foes Steal Our Vital Secrets--and How We Let It Happen by Bill Gertz Book Description: It’s the great untold story of the war on terror. Taking advantage of gaping holes in America’s defenses, terrorist organizations and enemy nations like Communist China, North Korea, Russia, and Cuba—not to mention some so-called friends—are infiltrating the U.S. government to steal our most vital secrets and use them against us. And most astonishing of all, our leaders are letting it happen. In the explosive new book Enemies, acclaimed investigative reporter Bill Gertz uncovers the truth about this grave threat to our national security and America’s harrowing failures to address the danger. Gertz’s unrivaled access to the U.S. intelligence and defense communities allows him to tell the whole shocking story, based on previously unpublished classified documents and dozens of exclusive interviews with senior government and intelligence officials. He takes us deep inside the dark world of intelligence and counterintelligence—a world filled with lies and betrayal, spies sleeping with enemy spies, and moles burrowing within the FBI, the CIA, the Pentagon, and even the White House.
Enemies stunningly reveals:
• The untold story of one of the most damaging enemy spy penetrations in U.S. history—and how the FBI bungled the investigation
• How Communist China’s intelligence and influence operations may have reached the highest levels of the U.S. government ...

Compelling New Book Takes Deeper Look at Hu Jintao-1/10 RFA, Reviewed by RFA Executive Editor Dan Southerland-- In late 2003, China’s new president Hu Jintao made a speech celebrating the late Mao Zedong. He said not a word about Mao’s disastrous mistakes. According to author Willy Lam, this was a wake-up call for many Chinese intellectuals, who until then had regarded Hu as a reformer who would eventually open up China’s political system. “Given that even official party documents had faulted Mao for having made serious mistakes during the Cultural Revolution…a number of intellectuals in Beijing thought that Hu had gone too far,” writes Lam in Chinese Politics in the Hu Jintao Era. Since President Hu took control of China more than three years ago, China watchers have been debating his effectiveness, his ideological leanings, and his grip on power. Although Hu’s staying power is now proven, his effectiveness is still up for debate. And many are still puzzled over his ideology. What are his deepest convictions? How does his thinking compare with that of previous Chinese leaders? Lam resists indulging in wishful thinking about Hu. Instead, he has gathered abundant evidence that Hu is a cautious conservative unlikely to embark on the political reforms that Lam thinks are essential to China’s long-term stability. President Hu, Lam says, “does not believe that there is anything intrinsically wrong” with one-party, authoritarian rule. Although Marxism has been discredited around the world, Hu still believes that it is a scientific system. And, in Lam’s view, Hu is more a disciple of Mao than of the pragmatic Deng Xiaoping.

The Final Triumph of Chiang Kai-shek-5/3Wash. Post, Review by Laura Tyson Li
THE GENERALISSIMO: Chiang Kai-Shek and the Struggle for Modern China; By Jay Taylor. Belknap. 722 pp. $35
Chiang Kai-shek ranks as one of the most despised leaders of the 20th century. Famously derided as "Peanut" and "General Cash-My-Check," the leader of China's Nationalist government bedeviled the Allied war effort in World War II with his lackluster defense of his country. His corrupt and brutal regime squandered billions of dollars in American aid and drove the Chinese into the arms of the communists. He died in exile a deluded despot, relegated to a footnote in modern Chinese history. Or so the conventional story goes. Now, however, Jay Taylor's new biography, "The Generalissimo: Chiang Kai-shek and the Struggle for Modern China," challenges the catechism on which generations of Americans have been weaned.
