ON-Lion Letter

Published by The National Bureau of Asian Research, the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College, and the U.S. Pacific Command, The Chinese People's Liberation Army in 2025 addresses the uncertainties surrounding the potential direction of the People's Liberation Army's (PLA's) future developments.  The book is divided into three distinct focus areas:  1.) the domestic, external, and technological drivers of PLA modernization; 2.) alternative futures for the PLA; and 3.) the implications of these futures.

The analyses provide insightful perspectives into the factors shaping and propelling the PLA's modernization, its potential future orientation ranging from internally focused to globally focused, and how its choices may impact China's relations with its neighbors, the U.S., and the international system.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports The National Bureau of Asian Research, including its work on the PLA.
