        ABOUT THE BOOK


        From The Publisher
        Time and again, Tom Clancy's novels have been praised not only for their
        big-scale drama and propulsive narrative drive but for their cutting-edge
        prescience in predicting future events.

        In The Bear and the Dragon, the future is very near at hand indeed.

        Newly elected in his own right, Jack Ryan has found that being President has
        gotten no easier: domestic pitfalls await him at every turn; there's a
        revolution in Liberia; the Asian economy is going down the tubes; and now, in
        Moscow, someone may have tried to take out the chairman of the SVR--the
        former KGB--with a rocket-propelled grenade. Things are unstable enough in
        Russia without high-level assassination, but even more disturbing may be the
        identities of the potential assassins. Were they political enemies, the
        Russian Mafia, or disaffected former KGB? Or, Ryan wonders, is something far
        more dangerous at work here?

        Ryan is right. For even while he dispatches his most trusted eyes and ears,
        including black ops specialist John Clark, to find out the truth of the
        matter, forces in China are moving ahead with a plan of truly audacious
        proportions. If they succeed, the world as we know it will never look the
        same. If they fail...the consequences will be unspeakable.

        Blending the exceptional realism and authenticity that are his hallmarks with
        intricate plotting, razor-sharp suspense, and a remarkable cast of
        characters, this is Clancy at his best--and there is none better.

        "Clancy is a natural storyteller." --USA Today

        "When the door blows open and the shooting starts, nobody does it better than
        Tom Clancy."--The Dallas Morning News
