Beyond The Thaw: A New National Strategy
Beyond The Thaw: A New National Strategy
By S. J. Deitchman
Westview Press, 1991, 258 pp

It is also nicely honest in assessing the current global context and framing a new strategy that gives priority to putting America's domestic house in order, complete with money estimates to match.
