Terrorism, Asymmetric Warfare, and Weapons of Mass Destruction: Defending the U.S. Homeland


New threats require new thinking. State attacks involving long-range missiles or conventional military forces are not the only threat to the U.S. homeland.

In this comprehensive work, Cordesman offers a range of recommendations, from reevaluating what constitutes a threat and bolstering homeland defense measures, to improving resource allocation and sharpening intelligence.
