The authors describe themselves as "an arms controller and an arms builder." Neither has been known for diffidence, as anyone who has sampled Augustine's Laws can attest, and both have a belief in government service that did not always characterize the top of the Reagan administration they both most recently served. Their readable book ranges widely, but its heart is how the United States buys its weapons. Much of their concluding guidance is both eminently sensible and politically improbable-for example, that Congress abandon the frustration of parallel appropriation and authorization, or that it and the executive agree on a multiyear core defense program.
