Chinese Comprehensive Strategic Deterrence, Great Multi-Domain Wall and Expanding Global Reach: Implications for Indo-Japanese Cooperation is a well researched attempt to analyse the fast-paced progress made by China and its People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in the military-cum-geo-political landscape. President Xi Jinping’s ambitious dream for Chinese rejuvenation is to lead the world in Comprehensive National Power by 2049.  The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has its core interests  and is not ready to compromise.  They are, therefore, advancing them on all fronts while simultaneously avoiding war. This book reveals the contours of this policy, identifies the key stratagems of the Chinese Grand Strategy, its implications and key deterrence facilitators.

The PLA, ordered repeatedly to be loyal to the CCP, has accordingly established a nearly impregnable multi-domain wall to deter China’s adversaries, particularly America, India and Japan. The resource-hungry nation has exploited its vast industrial base and exploited its fast-expanding Diaspora. The Chinese government has channelized its scientific talent in conjunction with secret technology transfers and espionage to lead technology development, especially in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Quantum, Robotics, Blockchain, Hypersonic and Big Data Analytics.

This book is a comprehensive compendium of the key measures initiated by the CCP and President Xi to revive Han supremacy the world over. It brilliantly covers the PLA’s march from ‘Mechanisation’ to ‘Informationisation’ to ‘Intelligentisation’ It covers the major aspects of all possible Chinese domains of warfare and uncovers the Chinese secret methodology to rapidly expand her global sphere of influence.

It is an essential book for all China-watchers, military strategists, advanced technology-gazers and those who actually want to stand up to Chinese hegemony and rising ambitions.
