Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

National security, a topic routinely discussed behind closed doors by Washingtonand#8217;s political scientists and policy makers, is believed to be an insiderand#8217;s game. All too often this highly specialized knowledge is assumed to place issues beyond the graspand#8212;and interestand#8212;of the American public. Author D. Robert Worley disagrees. The U.S. national security system, designed after World War II and institutionalized through a decades-long power conflict with the Soviet Union, is inadequate for the needs of the twenty-first century, and while a general consensus has emerged that the system must be transformed, a clear and direct route for a new national security strategy proves elusive.

Furnishing the tools to assist in future national security reforms, Orchestrating the Instruments of Power articulates and synthesizes the concepts of Americaand#8217;s economic, political, and military instruments of power.

Book News Annotation:
