The future orientation and capabilities of the Chinese military, of great significance for policymakers, journalists, and scholars alike, is already a major issue in U.S. foreign policy and is likely to become more so over time. This volume, the most up-to-date assessment by specialists on the Chinese military, pays particular attention to the future orientation of the People's Liberation Army. It addresses the Chinese military leadership, defense doctrine and military readiness, preparations for high-tech warfare acquisitions, military expenditure, military logistics, the scientific and technological base for defense procurement, and China's security concerns in Northeast Asia.

Table of contents

This first-of-its-kind project documents the contributions of women in public administration. It contains eight research-based case studies on women who have contributed to the field - academics, government managers, and activists. The women profiled are not from a random sample - they were selected based on their contributions to the theory and practice of public service. Each chapter relates the life and work of each subject to the broad issues faced by today's public servants. The result is a book that is both instructive and inspirational, and that should be read by every aspiring public service practitioner.
