US National Security : Policymakers, Processes, and Politics
Completely revised throughout, the fourth edition of "US National Security" reflects the new strategic landscape as it has evolved in the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks. The ongoing US military involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq, the focus on homeland security, the significant organizational changes in the intelligence bureaucracy, and the impact of the Bush Doctrine are among the current issues that inform the authors' clear presentation and appraisal of US security interests, politics, and processes.
