Theater Missile Defense (TMD) in East Asia: Implications for Beijing and Tokyo
LIT Verlag Münster, 2007 - 510 עמודים
Japan is on the verge of deploying the latest jointly-researched theater missile defenses (TMD) to counter the threat of ballistic and cruise missiles. In parallel, the Peoples Republic of China is constantly modernizing its ballistic missile forces and is gearing up for a possible contingency with its self-proclaimed "high-tech adversaries." This work shows what drives Japan to deploy theater missile defenses and how the People's Republic of China is poised to react to it.
