Insurgency and Counterinsurgency in the 21st Century: Reconceputalizing Threat and Response. Authored by Dr. Steven Metz, LTC Raymond A. Millen.
Modern insurgency warfare presents fresh challenges for the United States, which must re-conceptualize its approach to fighting such conflicts. Because the dominant characteristics of insurgency--protractedness and ambiguity--effectively stymie the American military's approach to war, the United States needs to reorient its strategic thinking.

With the armed forces of the People's Republic of China (PLA) celebrating its 75th anniversary on August 1, 2002, it only seemed appropriate and timely to take stock of the world's largest military.

Although China experienced a significant decline in its arms exports in the 1990s (down from the boom times of the 1980s), the PRC provides a significant array of lethal weapons and sensitive defense technologies to states around the world.

The Chinese People s Liberation Army (PLA) has also analyzed the Kosovo conflict and drawn its own conclusions. Different groups within the Chinese military drew different judgments.

This monograph provides an appraisal of the ability of the People's Republic of China (PRC) to build a credible military force in the 21st century.

What's with the Relationship between America's Army and China's PLA? Authored by Colonel Jer Donald Get.
There are some who question the value of renewing military ties with the People's Republic of China (PRC) based on the limited gains accrued to the U.S. Army from the earlier relationship. In this essay, U.S. Army Colonel Jer Donald Get argues that this is a short-sighted attitude. Our Army and the PLA must take a measured approach, setting pragmatic objectives.

China's Quest for Security in the Post-Cold War World. Authored by Dr. Samuel S. Kim.
What the world sees in China, a modernizing, economically robust, and assertive regional hegemon and world power "want-to-be," is, Dr. Kim asserts, at least in part a facade. Although China has made remarkable economic progress in the past few years, those who trumpet its rise do not consider its massive internal contradictions involving social, political, demographic, and environmental problems.

China's Transition into the 21st Century: U.S. and PRC Perspectives. Authored by Dr. David Shambaugh, Senior Colonel Wang Zhongchun.
Professor Shambaugh contends that those who succeed Deng Xiaoping, fearful of any further erosion of Communist Party hegemony and determined to return China to a purer form of neo-Maoist Marxism, will become even more conservative as China's economic and social problems intensify. Senior Colonel Wang Zhongchun provides a tour d'horizon of nearly a half-century of Chinese defense policy.
