Synopsis

This book is about a cyberwar with China. This new type of war, says the author, is China's effort at bending another country's will to its own. It is clever, broadly applied, successful, and aimed directly at the United States. This war is neither conventional nor incidental. The U.S. military is at a disadvantage because it is part of a system of government that is democratic, decentralised and mostly separated from American businesses. This system has served the country well but is not a path that China sees as worth following. This book is not a ""how to"" book of strategies that might be developed to fight a cyberwar. It is a way to grasp and categorise what the Chinese are already doing, to make sense of it. Until the U.S. sees itself as in a war, it cannot begin to effectively prosecute it.
