The Strategic Imperative: New Policies for American Security
The Strategic Imperative: New Policies for American Security
Edited by Samuel P. Huntington
Ballinger (for the Harvard Center for International Affairs), 1982, 360 pp.

This product of Harvard's new Program in National Security Studies is an interesting collection of essays which, in contrast to the Blechman volume (above), places comparatively greater emphasis on the need to strengthen U.S. defense capabilities and less on arms control. Although the book contains some good contributions, it suffers from the lack of a central organizing principle.
