Naval War College Review


In China’s Nuclear Forces Larry Wortzel has delivered an exceptional mono- graph that demands the attention of both nuclear strategists and China ex- perts. The author, a leading authority on China, Asia, national security, and military strategy, is currently serving as a commissioner on the congressionally mandated U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission. He previ- ously served as the director of the Asian Studies Center and vice president for foreign policy at the Heritage Founda- tion. Wortzel’s distinguished thirty- two-year career in the U.S. armed forces, during which time he served as both assistant Army attaché and then attaché at the American embassy in China, culminated with an assignment as director of the Strategic Studies Insti- tute at the Army War College.
