Abstract:

This study reports the results and analysis of a series of policy exercises conducted under RANDs The Day After ... project on the implications of nuclear proliferation for U.S. national security strategy and policy in the post-Cold War world. The study results and their apparent implications should be of considerable interest to defense planners and policy analysts who are working on the framing, analysis, and presentation for decision making of the U.S. and global national security problems attendant on nuclear proliferation-and the proliferation of other so-called weapons of mass destruction. The study results also should be of interest to the broad spectrum of individuals in the U.S. Congress, media, academia, and like institutions globally who are tracking and engaging in some fashion the emerging post-Cold War international security issues agenda and associated U.S. and global decision making. The report should have special appeal to individuals with an interest in political-military gaming and especially to those interested in exercises with a strong open field in terms of strategy and policy contents.
