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.
