'An excellent and useful overview of the formulation of strategy at its most practical level ... The authors deserve praise for their clear and concise prose, and for including useful features like lists of recommended reading at the end of every chapter and short biographical sketches of the giants of American defence policy.' - Canadian International Council's International Journal, Summer 2010, 789
‘In US Defense Politics, [the authors] look into politics affecting our national defense... The fact that each of the 12 chapters includes questions for discussion and recommendations for additional reading makes it a valuable tool for mentors who are developing the leaders of tomorrow.’ - SSgt Justin N. Theriot, USAF, in Air & Space Power Journal
