The Chinese Army Today is a comprehensive study of the Chinese military, examining its ground forces in a level of detail not found in any other contemporary works. This new, revised edition has been fully updated to take account of recent changes in the institution. In 1999, the military modernization program of the Chinese Peoplea€™s Liberation Army increased in intensity and achieved a focus not seen in the previous two decades. Based primarily on actual Chinese sources, this book details these changes and puts them in the context of the many traditions that still remain. Written by a retired professional military officer who has served in China, the text uses first-hand observation of the Chinese military and three decades of military experience to weave many disparate threads from official Chinese statements, documents, and media reports into an integrated whole. The author also conducts an in-depth exploration into the many forces that constitute the Peoplea€™s Liberation Army. This is an essential book for all students of Chinese military and security affairs, and highly recommended for students of Chinese Politics, Asian Security, and International Relations and Strategic Studies, in general.The target date for all units to implement the full scope of professional skills testing is the end of2012; those NCOs who do not pass their tests will not be promoted.18 From 1999 through 2 009, NCO ranks were divided into six grades ( called NCO Grade 1 through NCO Grade 6). ... physical examination; a#39; physical fitness test; a#39; professional skill tests; a#39; a a€œpeer selection by secret ballota€; a#39; final decision by theanbsp;...
