China's techno-warriors : national security and strategic competition from the nuclear to the information age
China's techno-warriors : national security and strategic competition from the nuclear to the information age / Evan A. Feigenbaum.
|Main author:||Feigenbaum, Evan A., 1969-|
"The book tells the story of how and why the Chinese military came to play such a powerful role in the country's economic and institutional development. It focuses on four issues: Chinese views of technology since 1950, the role of the military in China's political and economic life, the evolution of open and flexible conceptions of public management in China, and the technological dimensions of the rise of Chinese power." "But the book primarily explores and explains a paradox. This distinctly military approach to technology and development emerged during China's period of greatest external threat, from 1950 to 1969. Yet these ideologies, policies, and management methods have persisted even as China has come to enjoy perhaps its most benign strategic environment since the 1840s."--Jacket.
