Overview

With this timely study, a seasoned sinologist publicly examines the infiltration of Chinese espionage agents into foreign governments and private businesses. These efforts to collect state and technological secrets, he says, have been going on mostly uninterrupted for decades while Western intelligence services focused on the Soviet Union. Now, with the end of the cold war and the collapse of the USSR, attention must turn to these invasive operations. Unstinting in his research, the author has made full use of Chinese sources and his own longtime study of China. In addition, he draws on his expertise as a counterintelligence analyst to examine the structure, objectives, and methodology of Chinese clandestine activities. The book specifically addresses the human source in intelligence operations, such as agent and double-agent recruitment, and how these tactics fit into the conduct of internal and foreign affairs in China. The author's interviews with a number of Chinese diplomats, military and civilian intelligence officers, and secret agents reveal the cloak-and-dagger activities common to Chinese operatives in the United States. These astonishing descriptions read like a gripping espionage novel. Yet the book is uncompromising in its studious documentation. The monograph from which this work sprung was honored in 1992 as the best scholarly article on the subject of intelligence by the National Intelligence Study Center - a think tank founded by former top CIA officials. Written in a style that will appeal to a broad range of readers, this book is a one-of-a-kind intelligence study. Intelligence and defense professionals congressional and foreign government staffers, industrial and business security professionals, as well as intelligence buffs will all find something of interest in this compelling and detailed book.

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.)

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.
