Voted one of the top ten books on Asia in 2003 by Foreign Affairs.
"China's Techno-Warriors is an exceptionally well written volume, whose lively literacy helps turn a doctoral dissertation into an informative and meaningful interpretation of the broad course of China's pursuit of high-technology development from the early years of the People's Republic to the present."—China Business Review
"[P]acked with solid information and exceptional insights. Feigenbaum's [book] is a masterful review of how military considerations have dominated the development of science and technology in China."—Foreign Affairs
"Students of Chinese technical and scientific development owe Feigenbaum a debt of gratitude for so richly constructing the story of China's strategic-technology planners and their organizational and institutional impact."—Journal of Asian Studies
"This is a wonderfully multi-dimensional book on a subject about which little has been written. It has the added virtue of making its new material relevant to current academic and policy issues, including U.S. export controls, China's entry into the WTO, globalization, and China's economic and military modernization. Feigenbaum provides a good corrective to the reigning paradigm of Chinese bureaucratic politics that holds coordination to be difficult and largely absent in the process. Instead, he shows how China's 'weaponeers' built a system that was designed to overcome those problems."—David M. Lampton, SAIS, Johns Hopkins University
