Until now, no single volume has provided an authoritative, comprehensive, and concise description of China's evolving geo-strategy, or detailed how China is transforming its military to carry out this strategy. This book examines the current and future issues impinging on that strategic evolution, in order to facilitate an understanding of the military-strategic basis for, and future trajectory of, a rising China. Fisher examines how China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) remains critical to the existence of the Chinese Communist government and looks at China's political and military actions designed to protect its expanded strategic interests. And he examines how the United States and other governments simultaneously seek greater engagement with China on strategic concerns, while also hedging against its rising power. Although China faces both internal and external constraints on its rise to global eminence, it cannot be denied that China's government is pursuing a far-reaching strategic agenda.
