Abstract

Confusion in the West regarding the exact nature of civil‐military relations in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) could lead to significant problems for decision‐makers. Unlike the United States, there is a great deal of movement between civil and military offices in the PRC. Due to this fluid situation, it is difficult to anticipate an individual’s behavior simply by discovering his or her position in the bureaucracy. “Where you sit,” so far as the PRC is concerned, is not “where you stand.”.
