Putting "Defense" Back into U.S. Defense Policy: Rethinking U.S. Security in the Post-Cold War World

Synopsis

In this compelling study, Eland questions the core assumptions of the American foreign policy and defense establishments that call for military interventions around the world and high and increasing defense budgets at home. He outlines a security policy more appropriate to the sober realities of the post-Cold War era. This is an approach that calls for military restraint overseas, taking advantage of the already secure U.S. geostrategic position, while safeguarding truly vital national interests. Eland details the military forces needed for this new role and calculates the reduced defense budget required to pay for these forces.
