Tracking the Dragon   This official National Intelligence Council publication highlights long-classified National Intelligence Estimates on China through a comprehensive collection of more than seventy National Intelligence Estimates covering the Mao era (1948-1976) in China. This recently declassified collection represents the most authoritative China intelligence assessments of the United States Government in that period, constituting a unique historical record of a momentous era in China's modern history. The collection spans the pivotal period from the final stages of the Chinese civil war and the consolidation of the Communist regime through the upheavals of the Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution. It chronicles the struggles within the top leadership, the buildup of the Chinese military, and the evolution of the Sino-Soviet split. Tracking the Dragon allows the reader to assess these developments with a degree of historical perspective, while still feeling the excitement of reading "history as it happens."
This publication also includes a CD-ROM containing all 71 National Intelligence Estimates.
