About this Item

Title

  • Assessing the People's Liberation Army in the Hu Jintao era

Summary

  • The 2012 PLA (People's Liberation Army) conference took place at a time when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was making its leadership transition from Hu Jintao to Xi Jinping. The conference discussion focused on the developments in China's national security and in the PLA during the Hu Jintao Administration from 2002 to 2012. Key observations are presented in this volume. The most significant ones are Hu Jintao's promulgation of the new Historic Missions for the PLA, and Hu's complete handover of power to his successor. The former has turned on the green light for the PLA to go global. The latter is a milestone is the CCP's institution building.
