Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Written by a Defense Intelligence Agency analyst, this is a straightforward examination of the structure, operations and methodology of the intelligence services of the People's Republic of China. Eftimiades describes how the Ministry of State Security--China's preeminent civilian intelligence-gathering entity--draws on the services of diplomats, commercial representatives, Chinese communities in overseas cities and students. (The People's Republic sends approximately 40,000 students abroad annually.) His analysis of the case of Larry Wu-Tai Chin, a longtime CIA employee who was convicted of espionage in 1986, reveals much about Chinese operations in the United States. Although Eftimiades cautions that the Ministry of State Security will continue to penetrate and exploit the political, academic, industrial and technological institutions of Western nations, he adds reassuringly that China's intelligence apparatus is hobbled by its own red tape and hindered by the stultifying bureaucracy of the Chinese Communist Party. Of interest mainly to specialists. (Mar.)
Booknews
A long-term member of US intelligence agencies warns against the infiltration of foreign governments and private businesses by Chinese agents, which he says has been going on unnoticed and unabated for decades while the West was distracted by the Soviets. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
C.J. King
Eftimiades examines the Communist Chinese Intelligence structure and its many subordinate organs in great detail. This book is a must for serious intelligence students, especially those of Humint(human intelligence). Case studies are given, officials are named and the overall direction the Chinese Government seems to be headed in their intelligence operations.
Jay Rodgers
Mr. Eftimiades' book is over ten years old and yet probably remains the single most helpful introduction to the subject. His book covers the organization of the various Chinese intelligence agencies, their function, and several illustrations of how they collude to gather information for the People's Republic.

What is tragic about the book is that it was written before the public came to hear about China's intelligence operations through the Los Alamos incidents with Wen Ho Lee.
Robert Steele
Nick is an experienced sinologist who has worked at the Department of State, CIA, and DIA, and is also a naval reserve officer. His book is well-organized, well-researched, and essential reading for those who would understand how comprehensively the Chinese seek out scientific, technical, and military information in the United States, with a special emphasis on open sources of intelligence.

Meet the Author

Nicholas Eftimiades in an author and lecturer and lives in London, England. His career spans several US government agencies and hundreds of thousands of miles in Africa, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.


Mr. Eftimiades authored a book and number of scholarly articles on national security, technology, and outer space issues. His book "Chinese Intelligence Operations", is an examination of the structure, operations, and methodology of the intelligence services of the People's Republic of China. To date, it remains the only scholarly analysis of China’s intelligence services.


Nick's latest work is a political and philosophical satire entitled "Edward of Planet Earth". It is a madcap adventure that spoofs modern life, from organized religion to the traffic control system. The story takes place 200 years in the future where Edward Temple, an ordinary person, is caught up in an zany world where self-aware super-computers are as argumentative, egotistical, demanding, and emotionally needy as the humans they serve. Everything is fair game as Edward navigates befuddled governments, psychotic software, greedy corporations, overly attentive robots, and women. And of course jelly donuts find their way into the story.


Nick is a frequent lecturer and public speaker on future technology and societal changes, and national security issues. He has appeared on CBS Evening News with Connie Chung, Dateline NBC, ABC's Day One, BBC America, National Public Radio, and dozens of other television and radio broadcasts. Eftimiades testified before several US Congressional and Presidential Commissions concerning National Security issues, future technology development, and the future of the US space program. He has been a consultant for several Hollywood movies.


Nick Eftimiades’ 28 year government career includes seven years at the National Security Space Office leading engineering teams designing "generation after next" national security space capabilities. He was also Senior Technical Officer in Defense Intelligence Agency, Future’s Division, and Chief of DIA’s Space Division. He served as DIA's lead for national space policy and strategy development.


In his off time Mr. Eftimiades formed and manages the Federation of Galaxy Explorers, a non-profit organization to educate and inspire children in space science and engineering. To date, Galaxy Explorers has educated and inspired over 25,000 children. He is also a passionate amateur astronomer.
