Noted scholars and practitioners describe how America's military strategy is being developed in a post-Cold War eolitical environment to meet future needs confronting the sole surviving world superpower. In defining the domestic constraints and the intense political process that is tied into the formulation of military strategy, they show how difficult it is to build a consensus for American military leadership in a multipolar world. This evaluation of strategic concepts and their application to issues about conventional and nuclear deterrence, technological requirements, and collective security should be required reading for staff officers, civilians in national security bureaucracies, policymakers, and students and scholars concerned with military and security policy.

Editorial Reviews

?Guertner makes a solid contribution to the ongoing debate about post-Cold War US national strategy in this edited collection of original papers from the College's 1992 Strategy Conference. . . . By far the best chapter is Jablonsky's masterful examination, "Why Is Strategy Difficult?" complemented nicely by the work of Art, Haffa, Cordesman, and Stuart. The remaining chapters are technically solid and often insightful. . . . Recommended for professional libraries and national security specialists.?-Choice
