Transformation and Strategic Surprise. Authored by Dr. Colin S. Gray.
The U.S. Armed forces may be attempting to effect the wrong transformation. What the country needs is military power that is not only superior at warfare, but also can win wars and the peace that follows--and those are strategic and political competencies.

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.

Senior Colonel Wang Zhongchun provides a tour d'horizon of nearly a half-century of Chinese defense policy.

RMAs are driven by more than breakthrough technologies, and while the technological component is important, a true revolution in the way military institutions organize, equip and train for war, and in the way war is itself conducted, depends on the confluence of political, social, and technological factors.
