Lee is one of a handful of intelligence analysts who have monitored Soviet and Russian military and economic affairs since 1951 when he began work with the Central Intelligence Agency. He has been doing threat analyses and forecasting of both the People's Republic of China and Soviet/Russian strategic forces. Lee's estimates of Soviet defense expenditures are the only Western estimates to be corroborated by Soviet sources. Lee's book Soviet Military Policy Since World War II (1986) was translated into Chinese by the government of the People's Republic of China. His most recent book, The ABM Treaty Charade: A Study in Elite Illusion and Delusion (1997), was published last year.
