An insightful, well conceptualised and meticulously researched book, delves on the rationality of the momentous PLA’s modernisation and restructuring. Thought provoking, it asserts the expansionist designs of PRC and builds on the China Threat Theory. An invaluable addition to the literature for understanding of PLA, with viable ways forwards for India.”

“Military modernisation and restructuring is defined as upgrading and adopting new technologies, new strategies to counter emerging challenges. PLA has embarked upon military modernisation and restructuring to improve the efficiency of the military and realigning its objectives to address current and future military challenges. The Book PLA Modernisation and Force Restructuring has highlighted that assertive China and modernised military will have geostrategic implications for regional and extra regional powers.”
