2004 New Concepts in the RMA; 200 New Military Terms

Description: Not a dictionary. A novel-size research book giving one to five page explanations of 200 important strategic concepts or military terms relevant to modern warfare.  Sorted by topic, term given in Chinese and English with a one to five page essay (in Chinese) explaining the term, its use and relevance. Only 200 terms, but a very good selection (strategic, operational, tactical, units, equipment, etc.,).  Several terms give country of origin, some history on the development of the concept, or recent historical examples.  Written in simple modern Chinese, though some familiarity with basic military terms recommended.  Best suited for a student of Chinese who can read a one or two page long article (with some dictionary assistance)  who is looking for a broader or deeper understanding of a few key current  terms that impact the PLA view of strategy and warfare.  Not for the student looking for word-to-word translations.
