"The title says it all: The Dragon Extends Its Reach is a masterwork of research and review about the recent past and a superb delivery of prognostication regarding what is arguably the single most important geo-political nation-state on the face of the earth, especially in the context of its potential impact on global security and specifically on the security of the United States. All government leaders, generals and admirals, intelligence professionals, captains of industry, and every citizen who cares about our relationship with the People's Republic of China should read every sentence of this book."--LT.
