U.S. National Strategy For The 1990s
Edited by Daniel J. Kaufman, David S. Clark and Kevin P. She
Johns Hopkins, 1991, 273 pp.
Defining strategy as how a nation connects its means to its objectives, the editors, from West Point's political science department, have assembled a thoughtful snapshot of America's best thinking. Not all the arguments are new, but the authors, ranging from Samuel Huntington to Michael Doyle, could hardly be improved upon. They move from describing threats to proposing alternative future American strategies. The result admirably serves the editors' purpose of advancing the national debate.
