On the heels of President Bush's tour of Asia, on Tuesday, November 22, Hudson Institute will release its analysis of China's growing economy and military power. The study, CHINA'S NEW GREAT LEAP FORWARD: HIGH TECHNOLOGY AND MILITARY POWER IN THE NEXT HALF-CENTURY, addresses the growing scientific and technological sophistication of China's economy and military and, accordingly, the implications for broad U.S. national security interests.
Journalists may dial in to an exclusive teleconference with the study's authors at 2 p.m. EST on Tuesday, November 22. The telephone number for the teleconference is: 719-457-2634 or 800- 967-7185.
As U.S. foreign policy has shifted in focus since September 11 overwhelmingly toward the war against terror and in support of democratization in the Greater Middle East and Central Asia, the prospect of China's emergence as a peer competitor to long- standing U.S. technological leadership, though widely discussed, has not been adequately analyzed. CHINA'S NEW GREAT LEAP FORWARD seeks to encourage serious discussion among both the general public and policymakers about the challenges of China's anticipated development of weapons of greater complexity and power.
Interviews with the study's authors may be arranged by contacting Maria Farkas at 202-974-6447 or
