Restructuring American Foreign Policy

Edited by John D. Steinbruner

Brookings, 1989, 260 pp.

Eight data-filled and authoritative papers on the problems of maintaining military security, technological innovation and a healthy standard of living in a difficult world environment and an inflexible political system. The best essay is John Steinbruner's exploration of "The Prospect of Cooperative Security," i.e., a policy of responding creatively to Gorbachev's initiatives in ways which enhance stability and reduce military spending by a significant amount.
