Om boka

Over the last decade, asymmetric warfare and terrorism have become prevalent threats to the United States. National security, today more than at any other time, demands decision-making under uncertainty. The issues presented in this book demonstrate that the value of planning depends upon how well the United States can prepare for a perpetually unpredictable future.



Each chapter examines pertinent management, leadership, and accountability issues related to U.S. national security and places readers at the center of difficult decisions. Although the cases collected in this volume revolve around national security related policy questions, they also illustrate more general policy dilemmas and are designed to stimulate new ideas.

Om forfatteren

"A diverse and rich set of cases that explore many of the new challenges that confront U.S. national security policymakers today. Drawing on a team of established scholars and experienced practitioners, this book provides both an assessment of new threats and challenges and a case-based examination of decision-making processes... A compelling argument for the case-study approach and a fruitful blending of academic and practitioner perspectives and approaches. This book contributes significantly both to our understanding of decisions and decision-making processes as well as to our grasp of the security challenges of the 21st century." -- Robert H. Dorff, Ph.D., Professor of National Security Policy and Strategy, and Chairman, Department of National Security and Strategy, U.S. Army War CollegeVolker C.
