ABSTRACT

'People' in the PLA: Recruitment, Training, and Education in China's Military   [open pdf - 2MB]

Alternate Title: People's Liberation Army

"This volume represents the latest in the series published by the Strategic Studies Institute and describes the advances and reforms the PLA [People's Liberation Army] has made in its recruitment, officer and NCO training and education, and mobilization. As part of its larger reform effort to modernize and transform its military into a technologically sophisticated force, the PLA has implemented a number of measures aimed at training up a 'new-type' officer for its modernized forces--one capable of operating effectively in a technologically advanced 'informationalized' environment. This volume sheds light on such important questions as how the PLA's personnel system is adapting to fulfill the requirements of a military force capable of 'winning local wars under informationalized conditions' and how the PLA is cultivating a new generation of officers and what capabilities these new officers will likely possess."
