Defending America: Toward a New Role in the Post-Detente World
Defending America: Toward a New Role in the Post-Detente World
By Theodore Draper and others
Basic Books, 1977, 255 pp

Thirteen well-known authors, including James R. Schlesinger, Paul Nitze, Eugene Rostow, Albert Wohlstetter and Walter Laqueur, with a common purpose: to point out the failures and inadequacies of the policy of détente as practiced in the time of Henry Kissinger. As is to be expected, the authors are deeply concerned over the growth of Soviet military power, as they perceive it, and its political implications.
