Real Security: Restoring American Power in a Dangerous Decade
Real Security: Restoring American Power in a Dangerous Decade
By Richard J. Barnet
Simon and Schuster, 1981, 160 pp.

Given the countertenor of the times, it is to be welcomed. Yet for those who follow the debate closely, there is disappointingly little that is new.
