Communist guerrillas on a mission behind Japanese lines, Hong Kong, 1942.

Chinese Communist Espionage, from the Revolution to the People’s Republic is “in the can” and in production. Publication by the Naval Institute Press in Annapolis, Maryland is expected in November 2019.

The book, by Peter Mattis and Matt Brazil, will be the first work published in English that uses mostly Chinese language sources to examine how Beijing’s intelligence organs developed, from their early stages to today’s worldwide operations.
