Hans Kristensen on “An Undersea Deterrent?”

Hans M. Kristensen, A Chinese Seabased Nuclear Deterrent?,” FAS Strategic Security Blog, 1 June 2009.

The magazine U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings has an interesting article about China’s nuclear ballistic missile submarines written by Andrew S. Erickson and Michael Chase from the U.S. Naval War College. And I’m not just saying that because they reference several of my publications about China, but because they provide an interesting discussion of the possible motivations for China’s emerging sea-based nuclear force.
