Exceptionally well-researched and written as evidenced by its receipt of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) writing award in 2011, this monograph examines the growth of Chinese cyber power and their known and demonstrated capabilities for offensive, defensive and exploitive computer network operations.

The U.S. Army War College student author compares China's capacity and potential to the United States' current efforts for cyber security, highlights the degree to which the People's Republic of China's cyber power poses a threat to United States' national security, and offers proposals to improve future U.S. policy for cyber security and defense.
