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.

Review quote

"Takes us through the process and the institutions briefly, clearly, logically.... a most thoughtful and enlightening presentation." - International Affairs "The most easily understood introduction to the U.S. national security process is still Sam C. Sarkesian's U.S. National Security." - Military Review "Well organized, probing, instructive, and multidimensional in perspective." - Perspectives on Political Science"
