The author would like to thank the many people who were generous in freely giving their time to discuss U.S.-China military relations. They all provided valuable information and insights into the relationship. Because of the highly politicized nature of the issue, all prefer to remain nameless.
The author thanks James Mulvenon for his guidance in organizing the report, David Adamson, Eric Valko, and Jeanne Heller for their excellent editing of an early draft, and Heather Roy for valuable administrative support throughout the endeavor. He also thanks reviewers Roger Cliff and David Finkelstein for their comments and Jonathan Pollack and William Rosenau for their comments on an early version of this paper that will appear as a chapter in a larger volume on U.S. security cooperation in Asia.
