Know before you buy. This work is NOT a causal description of a few cases of Chinese espionage with pictures thrown in for intrigue and excitement. Some may find it as dry as James Bond's vodka martini.

This short book (13.6k words) is the first in a series on Chinese Espionage. It is a critical analysis of China's current intelligence activities and associated espionage tradecraft. This work is for Insider Threat specialists, Intelligence Officers, security professionals, attorneys, policy makers, journalists, and anyone else who needs a detailed understanding of China's espionage operations and tactics. There is no history, a very short introduction, no discussion of Chinese politics, Sun Tzu quotes, etc.

This short book is the most detailed work ever published in the unclassified world on China's intelligence tradecraft. This analytical product was years in the making and includes analysis of 595 cases of espionage, economic espionage, covert action, theft of technology and trade secrets. The study identifies and analyzes the specific espionage tradecraft used by China's intelligence services, State Owned Enterprises, universities, private companies, and individuals.


A must read for professionals in Counter intelligence, security and government affairs. The author has crafted the most detailed account ever published on China's espionage operations and tactics...... The USA is loosing its secrets and technology to China's "whole of society" approach ..... Our Nation's need for good counterintelligence has never been greater ......Mr. Eftimiades is the real deal, a veteran of the Intelligence Community who describes the challenges and provides recommendations on how to do a better job in protecting America.

- Nicholas G. Kikis, Former Director /Defense Clandestine Service and Chief of East Asia Division.

Eftimiades' meticulously documented study shows how China's massive 'whole of society' approach to espionage has created a new paradigm on how intelligence activities are conducted and provides a cautionary tale for the numerous countries it has been directed against.

- Dr. June Teufel Dreyer 金德芳 Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Miami.
