This book will help students better grasp and understand the complex processes involved in making American defense policy. It will help them draw important lessons from our experiences during the Cold War while also providing them with a glimpse of many of the more important security challenges to come.
Perhaps the best book of its kind in the field.
A worthwhile addition to the library of anyone interested in American defense policy.
This book is an attempt to assemble in one volume a representative selection of the recent extensive American writings on defense matters; it succeeds brilliantly and, in a field in which the student and the policy-maker can equally become bogged down in the sheer volume of words, its editors have done a commendable service by concise compilation.
