Abstract : The author of the first essay, 'China and the Revolution in Military Affairs: Assessing Economic and Socio-cultural Factors,' argues that, for a variety of reasons, China cannot seize the Revolution in Military Affairs. For example, China is missing a generation of educated men and women due to the excesses of the cultural revolution. The author of the second essay, 'China's Capacity for Achieving a Revolution in Military Affairs,' argues that China's limited capabilities of air and sea forces will not enable it to achieve the level of military capability demonstrated by the United States during the Gulf War.
