THE CRISIS IN MILITARY AFFAIRS,
RAND CORP SANTA MONICA CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
In the years since World War II, American statesmen have found themselves increasingly preoccupied with military problems in their efforts to maintain and advance the interests of the United States. Not only have they had to decide how to deal with the various military threats to these interests. They have also had to take strategic considerations and the risk of war into account in all their day-to-day dealings with the outside world. Their task would have proved difficult enough had they had to confront the hostility of the Soviet empire with the traditional means of warfare. It has become almost unimaginably complex as a result of growing Russian power and what appears to be a continuing revolution in the technology of military weaponry. As a somewhat extended review of Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy, by Henry A. Kissinger, this paper discusses the Merits of the book in terms of its significance in matters of both military and foreign policy.
