“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…” —H.R. McMaster, author, Dereliction of Duty: Johnson, McNamara, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Lies that Led to Vietnam

“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 counterintelligence operations.” –Orville Schell, Arthur Ross Director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations, former Dean and Professor at the University of California, Berkeley

Chinese Communist Espionage shows us how the Communist Party’s earliest espionage operations inform the present, describes the true scale and scope of Chinese espionage and 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
