This is the first book of its kind to employ hundreds of Chinese sources to explain the history and current state of Chinese Communist intelligence operations. It profiles the leaders, top spies, and important operations in the history of China's espionage organs, and links to an extensive online glossary of Chinese Language intelligence and security terms.

Peter Mattis and Matthew Brazil present an unprecedented look into the murky world of Chinese espionage both past and present, enabling a better understanding of how pervasive and important its influence is, both in China and abroad.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Peter Mattis and Matt Brazil have added an important new resource for those interested in how the Chinese Communist Party exerts influence and collects information through covert intelligence activities. Most importantly, this book just may arm you with the awareness to avoid becoming snared in their ever widening net." --Dr. Robert S. Spalding III, Brigadier General (Ret), USAF, former Senior Director for Strategy at the National Security Council and former Defense Attache to China
"This is an important and timely book. Brazil and Mattis place China's sustained campaign of espionage in context. Chinese Communist Espionage: An Intelligence Primer is a must read for all who play a role in protecting free and open societies from this pernicious threat to security and prosperity." --H.R. McMaster, author, Dereliction of Duty: Johnson, McNamara, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Lies that Led to Vietnam
"This timely work joins a select body of literature that examines China's intelligence operations. This book is a very strong contribution to the field of study and unlike sensationalized or journalistic accounts, it presents an accurate and descriptive view of China's Espionage activities." --Nicholas Eftimiades, Assistant teaching Professor, Penn State University, and author Chinese Intelligence Operations
"In this painstakingly researched and very detailed effort to pierce the veil of Chinese opacity, Brazil and Mattis have helped limn both the history and current dimensions of the still shadowy world of Chinese intelligence and counter-intelligence operations. ? --Orville Schell, Arthur Ross Director, Center on US-China Relations, Asia Society
"Chinese espionage, both within and beyond cyberspace, lies at the heart of tensions between the United States and China. In Chinese Communist Espionage the authors make a painstaking investigation of China's espionage choices and show how they affected the Party's continued survival. Detailed, rich, surprising in parts, and altogether essential. ? --Martin Libicki, author of Cyberspace in Peace and War
"Chinese Communist Espionage performs several vital functions. It shows us how the Communist Party's earliest espionage operations inform the present; it describes the true scale and scope of Chinese espionage; and it alerts us to the nature of the world we now inhabit. For clarity and authority, this book is unmatched. We now have a standard text on China's intelligence history and machinery, and this is it. ? --Adam Brookes, author of the Night Heron trilogy
"As the US and China appear head towards an increasingly adversarial relationship that is divided not just by trade disputes, but by territorial conflicts in the South and East China Sea, Taiwan, as well as completely opposite political systems and values, the question of the Chinese Communist Party's intelligence gathering operations and influence seeking abroad gains new importance. In this painstakingly researched and very detailed effort to pierce the veil of Chinese opacity, Brazil and Mattis have helped limn both the history and current dimensions of the still shadowy world of Chinese intelligence and counter intelligence operations." --Orville Schell, Arthur Ross Director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations, former Dean and Professor at the University of California, Berkeley
