"an outstanding and important book."
--Alexandre Sheldon-Duplaix, Marine Technology (April 2012): 86-87.
Absolutely the most important book on air and space power I ve had the pleasure to read. The power of this detailed survey is doubled because it presents both an intelligent American analysis and an insightful view of the Chinese perception of the situation. Our two nations have much in common, but the understanding this difference in perception is essential to our selection of our future alternatives. A must have book! --COL. WALTER J. BOYNE, USAF (RET.)former director of the National Air and Space Museum
Serves well as an introduction to advances in Chinese maritime aerospace technology, and will also reward experts looking for the latest update on these evolving capabilities. Many readers will be surprised by the extent of Chinese progress described by the contributors to this work. They detail the strategic and technical issues that are shaping the Chinese military establishment as it looks beyond the country s shores, and examine how it will develop in coming years and decades. --BRADLEY PERRETT, Asia-Pacific bureau chief, Aviation Week, Beijing
An excellent and very readable overview of China s impressive advances in almost every aspect of air and space operations. Not only have the Chinese developed impressive technical capabilities, but they have also given careful thought to the operational concepts associated with them. This is a must read for anyone with a concern for American or Chinese military affairs. --COL. JOHN A. WARDEN III, USAF (RET.), author of The Air Campaign

But the heart of the book for a novice like myself was the realization of what the Chinese Second Artillery Corps has pulled off. Terminally guided precision Anti Ship Ballistic Missiles (ASBM) have essentially made our carriers obsolete for a war-time Taiwan mission in the Western Pacific. The PLAAF cruise missile, fighter and air defense systems are impressive. All of it feels like the Soviet reconnaissance/strike package implemented by a country that has its act together.
This book should be required reading by every staffer in Washington.
