Twelve well-known experts give an important overall assessment of U.S. post-Cold War defense needs and Clinton policy from a variety of perspectives. Together they analyze the causes for concern and planning for the future, questions relating to nuclear weapons, multilateral defense management, peacekeeping and peace enforcement, special operations and low-intensity conflict, current policymaking problems, civil-military relations, and prospects for the Clinton program in the 1990s. Provocative questions and conclusions should stimulate discussion among advanced undergraduate and graduate students and teachers, as well as to military experts and policymakers.

The experts raise many provocative questions and varying conclusions about the problems and prospects for the United States and for the post-Cold War era. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students and teachers should find that this hard-hitting analysis stimulates discussion, and military experts and policymakers should find this of real interest also.
