Terence Roehrig is professor and director of the Asia-Pacific Studies Group at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island.
In his well-documented and original study of U.S. Korea policy, Terence Roehrig does a marvelous job linking extended deterrence theory to U.S.-Republic of Korea security relations since 1945. He produced something rare: application of a broad, sophisticated theoretical framework explicating the complex subject. Furthermore, his discussions of U.S. security policy vis-a-vis North Korea's nuclear and missile threats are timely, meticulous, and well-balanced. -- Seung-Ho Joo, University of Minnesota, Morris From Deterrence to Engagement is a valuable background for those now making policy.
