The Gathering Pacific Storm: Emerging US-China Strategic Competition in Defense Technological and Industrial Development (paperback)

by Tai Ming Cheung and Thomas G. Mahnken


"This is a timely, thought provoking book on the state of the increasingly heated military-technological competition between the United States and its great power rivals, China and Russia. Coming on the heels of new National Security and Defense strategies that emphasize the return of great power competition, it is essential reading for those concerned about the erosion of U.S. military-technical advantage. Dr Cheung and Dr. Mahnken’s book is sure to provide an important intellectual foundation for debate over this important issue. Highly recommended!" –Robert Work, 32nd Deputy Secretary of Defense and CEO of the Center for a New American Security (CNAS)

"This book is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the intensifying strategic competition now underway between the United States and China. The authors analyze the most important dimensions of that rivalry, including missiles, space and counterspace systems, military aviation, surface and undersea warfare and artificial intelligence. Best of all, the volume offers a set of sensible proposals for military planners and civilian policymakers seeking to preserve America’s vital, but increasingly challenged, advantages in military technology." –Aaron L. Friedberg, Professor of Politics and International Affairs, Princeton University

“Sino-American competition is rapidly expanding across the economic, political, and military domains. It is one of the most consequential global security issues of the 21st century. The Gathering Pacific Storm is a very good contribution to our knowledge base on US-China strategic competition. It provides an excellent primer on an important determinant of this competition's outcome—comparative defense technological and industrial strategies.” –Karl Eikenberry, Director, US-Asia Security Initiative, Stanford University
