Abstract:

This report presents a range of different approaches to measuring the strategic balance ranging from static analysis to war gaming. The handbook was developed by various experts within the Department of Defense and the U.S. national security community as an aid to members of the military studies community who do not have access to classified information. The handbook covers such subjects as summary presentation of the balance, unclassified analytic tools and reference data for measuring the balance, relative merit of different measurement techniques, means of projecting the balance into the 1980s, new factors and technology shaping the future balance.
