The Spying Behind China's Rise to Power
Time & Location
About the Event
An unprecedented look into the murky world of Chinese espionage both past and present, enabling a better understanding of its impact in China and abroad. Harvard alumnus Dr. Matthew Brazil, AM '87, the co-author of Chinese Communist Espionage: An Intelligence Primer, will speak about his research into original sources that unearthed new insights into Beijing's most secret operations. The Wall Street Journal said: "Messrs. Mattis and Brazil’s book is the most comprehensive attempt yet to outline the range of China’s spying and the complicated web of agencies that carry it out. The scale of China's relentless espionage activities is far more understandable thanks to their work…The ignominious list of Americans, both of Chinese descent and otherwise, who have sold national or corporate secrets to China, or attempted to do so, is enough to raise questions about how much of China's military and economic rise could have been achieved without espionage."
