Abstract:

The purpose of this essay is to determine the threat to world peace posed by current and developing Communist Chinese military power. It investigates the military power and power potential from the conventional and nuclear aspects, and considers the Chinese ability to support wars of national liberation in the third world. The essay concludes that while the Chinese military threat is ever present, the Chinese will use considerable restraint in the use of that force within the immediate future. It further concludes that Communist China will not hesitate to use military force when she feels her vital interests are at stake.
