Are war clouds gathering in Asia? Will China make good on threats to invade Taiwan? What would this conflict mean for America and the world? Exposing internal Chinese military documents and restricted-access studies, “The Chinese Invasion Threat” explores the secret world of war planning, strategy, espionage, and national security. From a historic spy case that saved Taiwan from communist takeover to modern-day covert action programs, and from emergency alert procedures to underground coastal defense networks, this is the untold story of the most dangerous flash-point of our times. The book utilizes Chinese military documents to outline a potential Chinese invasion scenario, and analyzes the implications of such a threat for Taiwan, the United States, and the Asia-Pacific region.
This event featured a moderated discussion with Ian Easton, the author of “The Chinese Invasion Threat: Taiwan’s Defense and American Strategy in Asia,” followed by audience Q&A.
