Abstract:

While the American defense community has naturally been preoccupied with the extensive transformation of the U.S. reserve components in recent years, equally critical developments in the reserve policies of the worlds other major military powers have received less attention. The inevitability of continued American engagement with these countries means that their changing policies are highly relevant to the United States. American defense planners should therefore keep abreast of ongoing alterations in these countries reserve components and, in certain cases, might wish to adjust their own forces and policies in response. The Reserve Policies of Nations provides a comprehensive assessment of these issues as well as a wealth of data on recent developments affecting the reserve policies of many of the worlds leading military powers Australia, Britain, Canada, China, France, Germany, Israel, Japan, and Russia. By assembling this material in a single volume, Dr. Richard Weitz and the Strategic Studies Institute hope to make it easier for readers to comprehend these changes and develop insights regarding their implications.
