The author, an experienced Senate staff member specializing in foreign and defense policy, treats a very old subject with balance and clarity. In calling for a partnership he criticizes both the presidential tendency to launch initiatives without congressional participation and the lack of centralized authority and general disorderliness of Congress. The historical sections contain familiar material, but the discussion of the last 15 years is rich with specific detail.
