  • Modernisation of the Chinese PLA: From Massed Militia to Force Projection encapsulates the evolution of the Peoples’ Liberation Army (PLA) from its inception, through the tumultuous period of the Cultural Revolution on to the Four Modernization era of China’s overall transformation. The changing political scenario and impact of globalization had a significant influence in the revision of the PLA doctrine. This is covered leading to study of the war zone campaign concept and its impact on technology development and the equipment profile of the PLA. China’s revolution in military affairs is of particular significance as the PLA transforms its manpower to fight a future war in a high-tech environment with its military forces dynamically networked. The book also looks at how China has shifted emphasis from military operations to nonmilitary operations as a preemptive option employing cyber warfare, and computer network operations and information warfare with a high degree of deniability built around it. 

    Lt Gen JS Bajwa

    Lt. General J,S. Bajwa was commissioned into the Infantry in 1973. In the course of his military career, he has served along all the borders of his country. His interest in the India–China border was initiated when he was posted to the Scouts in Uttar Pradesh (now Uttranchal) in 1982. As a colonel, he was assigned the responsibility of dealing with the India–China border from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh, at the Military Operations Directorate, army headquarters, from 1997 to 2000. He was also the military representative in the Experts Group dealing with the delineation of the line of actual control and the military activities related to it. He was also posted to the army’s Perspective Planning Directorate, where he was assigned the task to assess the Chinese military capability and potential, which could manifest as a threat to India. He has been chief of staff of the army’s Eastern Command, which is primarily responsible for managing the contentious border problem with China in Arunachal Pradesh.
