"Chinese intelligence, as this book amply shows, is not quite like any other form of intelligence in other countries, East or West..."

"This book was written by the fascinating team of I.C. Smith and Nigel West. I.C. Smith certainly knows the situation from inside, having worked for the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a quarter-century, during which time he developed considerable familiarity with intelligence as practiced by the People's Republic of China and was crucial in several major cases included in this book.  After retirement, among other things, he became an analyst of and commentator on the broader threat to the United States of China's growing presence and influence.  To give his personal views, in 2004, he published his autobiography, Inside.  His coauthor, Nigel West, has always been interested in Chinese intelligence as part of his ongoing study of intelligence in general, as reflected by a series of books he has written over the past several decades, including a half-dozen in this series.  He is widely known as an experts' expert on espionage, and this title fills one of the few remaining gaps.  Between them, they provide a good deal of insight, which is of great interest to specialists and amateurs but also some food for thought, which could certainly be useful to all of us."
