The hundred-year marathon : China's secret strategy to replace America as the global superpower by Michael Pillsbury( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Chinese and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than forty years, the United States has reached out to China, helping it develop a booming economy and take its place on the world stage, in the belief that there is little to fear--and everything to gain--from China's rise. But what if the Chinese have had a different plan all along? The Hundred-Year Marathon reveals China's secret strategy to supplant the United States as the world's dominant power, and to do so by 2049, the one hundredth anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic. Michael Pillsbury, who has served in senior national security positions in the U.S. government since the days of Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, draws on Chinese documents, speeches, and books (many of them never translated into English) to reveal the roots of this strategy in traditional Chinese statecraft and track how the Chinese are putting it into practice today. Pillsbury shows how American policymakers have been willfully blind to these developments for decades--and he includes himself in that critique, as he was once a leading voice in favor of aiding China. He also calls for the United States to design a new, more competitive strategy toward China as it really is, and not as we might wish it to be. The Hundred-Year Marathon is a wakeup call for all Americans concerned about how we have misread the greatest national security challenge of the twenty-first century"--
China debates the future security environment by Michael Pillsbury( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and Chinese and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study offers over 600 selected quotations from the writings of over 200 Chinese authors published from 1994 to 1999. Analysis and interpretation are kept to a minimum so that the Chinese may speak for themselves. Many Chinese scholars assisted with this study by providing hard-to-get books and articles unfamiliar to most Westerners. Half the authors were interviewed in China. They explained some of the viewpoints in recent debates about the future security environment. Debates in China are generally concealed, and frequently authors pretend they do not exist. However muted they may be, China's debates about the future nevertheless exist and merit attention if we are to understand the premises of China's national strategy and set a baseline from which to measure any future change in these premises. China policy debates are not easy to understand fully ..."--Preface
Salt on the dragon : Chinese views of the Soviet-American strategic balance by Michael Pillsbury( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the policy implications of Chinese perceptions about SALT and the strategic military balance between the Soviet Union and the United States. For Peking, apparent American concessions in SALT could inadvertently inflate Chinese suspicions of Soviet-American "collusion." Peking believes that essential equivalence of Soviet-American forces can never be attained because Moscow will always seek to overthrow it. Peking's official statements have indicated three major reversals of the U.S.-USSR strategic relationship. After Sputnik, Mao Tse-tung proclaimed the military superiority of the socialist camp. The second reversal in 1965 occurred as Peking's media described growing Soviet-American "collusion" and a Soviet-American nuclear military alliance aimed against China. The third shift began slowly after 1968 when China again saw contention between Moscow and Washington and dropped the "collusion" theme. Peking seems to desire a militarily strong United States able to withstand aggressive Soviet pressure
The political environment on Taiwan by Michael Pillsbury( Book )

5 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the political framework within which foreign businessmen operate on Taiwan. In brief, the government supervises the economy and the foreign businessman more closely than has been the case in, for example, Singapore and Hong Kong. On the other hand, the Taiwan government does not approach the extremes of protectionism and interventionism that are practiced by the Japanese government. In fact, Taiwan actively seeks many kinds of foreign investment and provides encouragement and practical assistance to the potential investor. The discussion of government and politics in Taiwan is divided into three sections. A first part reviews some relevant aspects of the Chinese political heritage. Taiwan's government still pays annual homage to the 2000-year-old Confucian tradition and it is important to grasp the image that Chinese officials have of their social functions and the role of government in society. A second part notes some major themes in the political history of the Republic of China and the ruling Nationalist party in the twentieth century suggesting how past experineces have shaped the government's view of its present situation. This section also sketches the present governmental structure of the Republic of China and briefly examines a question relevant to potential foreign investors, namely the question of Taiwan's ability to defend itself against external attack in the 1970's. A third part discusses the specific government agencies with which foreign investors must deal
Soviet apprehensions about Sino-American relations, 1971-74 by Michael Pillsbury( Book )

4 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines Soviet fears of U.S.-Chinese collusion against the USSR, and then considers the merits of the kind of military and intelligence cooperation that Moscow alleges has already begun. Memories of the American 1949 aid to a Yugoslavia threatened with Soviet invasion could affect Soviet perceptions today. Peking has long feared a surprise attack and has called for Brezhnev's overthrow, likening him to Hitler. China might wish U.S. military ties (1) to improve its forces, (2) to give Moscow the impression that the Americans would help China resist attack, (3) to generate Soviet-American friction, or (4) simply as part of an ongoing program to acquire all available foreign technology. The most advantageous policy for the United States might be to permit private export licenses for sales to China of defensive or passive military items, such as reconnaissance systems and over-the-horizon radar, which would be stabilizing rather than destabilizing. In addition, a Sino-American "hot line" would allow timely, imaginative crisis diplomacy to damp down Sino-Soviet hostilities.

Taiwan's fate : two Chinas but not forever by Michael Pillsbury( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

December 1973 Columbia University seminar paper, reissued without revision, describing the deliberately ambiguous de facto independence of Taiwan. The Kissinger-Chou Shanghai Communique can be interpreted in opposite ways. No one could have predicted that Red China would accept this "two Chinas but not forever" policy before the March 1969 Sino-Soviet border clashes motivated Peking to seek more positive relations with the United States. Now, while Peking still proclaims the "one China" principle, U.S.-Taiwanese trade grows as though the island will never be communized. The United States contributed to Taiwan's air and submarine forces without public protest from Peking. Moscow is subtly flirting with Taipei. Despite a reported atmosphere of political repression, a military coup from either the left or right cannot be ruled out. If Taiwan were to renounce the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty that she signed, her nuclear reactors could produce nuclear weapons in a few years, an outcome that Peking and Washington both wish to prevent
Statement to the Subcommittee on Future Foreign Policy Research and Development, Committee on International Relations, House of Representatives by Rand Corporation( Book )

3 editions published between 1976 and 1998 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A discussion of future foreign policy with China and the Soviet Union requested by Chairman Wolff. The author presents the argument that the United States should provide selected military assistance to China if it is requested. Advantages to such a relationship: (1) A military assistance and sales program would involve the Chinese defense establishment in a new diplomatic relationship, giving the Chinese military a stake in preserving good relations with the United States. (2) U.S. arms and technology transfers to China may aid in deterring a Soviet attack or further Soviet pressure on China, forestalling a future Sino-Soviet war. (3) Increasing Chinese military capabilities would induce even greater Soviet deployments to the Chinese border, tying down a greater percentage of Soviet forces. The discussion concludes with relevant excerpts from questions of Subcommittee members following the author's presentation

The hundred-year marathon : China's secret strategy to replace America as the global superpower by Michael Pillsbury( Recording )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than forty years, the United States has played an indispensable role helping the Chinese government build a booming economy, develop its scientific and military capabilities, and take its place on the world stage, in the belief that China's rise will bring us cooperation, diplomacy, and free trade. But what if the "China Dream" is to replace us, just as America replaced the British Empire, without firing a shot? Based on interviews with Chinese defectors and newly declassified, previously undisclosed national security documents, The Hundred-Year Marathon reveals China's secret strategy to supplant the United States as the world's dominant power, and to do so by 2049, the one-hundredth anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic. Michael Pillsbury, a fluent Mandarin speaker who has served in senior national security positions in the US government since the days of Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, draws on his decades of contact with the "hawks" in China's military and intelligence agencies and translates their documents, speeches, and books to show how the teachings of traditional Chinese statecraft underpin their actions. He offers an inside look at how the Chinese really view America and its leaders--as barbarians who will be the architects of their own demise

An assessment of China's anti-satellite and space warfare programs, policies and doctrines by Michael Pillsbury( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first two parts of this study present the results of a survey of Chinese writings that discovered 30 proposals that China should acquire several types of anti satellite weapons. Many foreign observers have mistakenly claimed that China is a pacifistic nation and has no interest such weapons. The Director of the US National Reconnaissance Office Donald Kerr confirmed a Chinese laser had illuminated a US satellite in 2006. These skeptical observers dismissed that laser incident, but then appeared to be stunned by the reported Chinese destruction of a satellite January 11, 2007. China declined to confirm the event, but many foreign governments immediately protested,1 including Japan, South Korea, Australia, Canada and Britain, while Russia's defense minister suggested the report may not be fully accurate. A Chinese foreign ministry spokesman, while declining to confirm the incident, said other countries should not be alarmed. A US NSC spokesman said China fired a missile to destroy an orbiting weather satellite, making it the third country after the United States and the former Soviet Union to shoot down anything in space. If confirmed, the test would mean China could now theoretically shoot down spy satellites operated by other nations
