Chinese Espionage: Operations and Tactics


People often ask when I will update my book Chinese Intelligence Operations. Instead, I'm publishing a series of monographs on the topic. Each (5k - 10k words) monograph will focus on specific aspects of China's espionage. 

This first monograph Chinese Espionage: Operations and Tactics is the most detailed work ever published in the unclassified world on China's intelligence tradecraft.  It includes analyses of 595 cases of espionage, economic espionage, covert action, theft of technology, and trade secrets.  The study identifies and analyzes the specific espionage tradecraft used by China's intelligence services, state-owned enterprises, private companies, and individuals.
