Abstract : ESSAYS ON STRATEGY VIII Begins with a study addressing the need for a shift in emphasis within the US intelligence community away from purely defense- related matters toward increasingly more important issues of international economics and commerce. If changes in the world continue at the current pace and extent, they could require such an unprecedented reorientation in national strategy. The other essays in this anthology also examine aspects of the changing international environment. Three of them-each of which was recognized for excellence in the Strategy Essay Competition sponsored by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff-analyze the requirements of US policy toward post- Noriega Panama, options for relocating US military facilities displaced or soon to be displaced from the Philippines, and whether, if adopted, the resurrected Open Skies proposal would benefit the United States. The final essay, an especially thoughtful and wide-ranging one, explores the relationship of national public policy to differing cultural concepts of the nature of man
