Abstract:

Net Assessment is at once an aid in solving national security problems and a sympton of the complexity of the times. While Net Assessment in its scientific analytical sense is not new, its acceptance as a legitimate model for deciding national security issues is. Net Assessment is an offspring of the nuclear weapon and the limited war philosophy which flows from it. In the second sense, it is an indication of the balancing and qualifying which are motivated by the avoidance of total war, that public opinion enters the Net Assessment environment.
