Introduction: China and Its Military

The FY 2000 National Defense Authorization Act mandated that an annual report be sent to Congress on the Military Power of the People’s Republic of China. The report, as well as China’s white papers on national defense and various official documents promulgated by Chinese government sources, give insights into what the United States knows about the military establishment in China.

China’s military policies and operational capacity merit careful attention as China becomes an ever more significant factor in world politics.
