This book could not have been written without the generous support of the Ford Foundation, which provided the primary funding for the Center for National Security Studies' Project on Constitutional Government and Military Intervention After the Cold War.
The chapters in this book were originally commissioned for the September 18-19, 1992 CNSS conference on Constitutional Government and Military Intervention After the Cold War held at and cosponsored by the Georgetown University Law Center. In planning for the conference, we were greatly assisted by an Advisory Committee composed of Barry Blechman, Harold Koh (who is also a contributor to this book), Edward Luttwak, and Eugene Rostow. Georgetown Law Professor Barry Carter ably served on our planning committee, and Molly Jackson, the Administrator for International Programs at the Law Center, provided fantastic logistical support in organizing the conference. Georgetown law students Kenneth Rexford, Stefanie Sanderman, and Megan Smith served as conference rapporteurs, and their notes were helpful in preparing this book.
Very special thanks goes to Sally Householder at CNSS for her constant and cheerful support at every stage of the project and book. Thanks also to Penny Bevis and Lynthia Gibson of CNSS for their assistance.
