‘In a book likely to annoy and please in equal measure, the authors use Chinese-language sources, often from public policy documents, to describe a system that has at its core not the attention-grabbing issue of cyberespionage, but human-based, meticulous, often open-source acquisition that involves multiple actors at all levels of the party and state, and appeals to the patriotism of Chinese abroad.' -- New York Times
'This book rings alarm bells about technology theft on a scale that the authors say is unprecedented in history and that they believe has strategic implications.' -- Foreign Affairs
