Promotional Information

The original edition of U.S. National Security was published to award-winning critical acclaim. But in the aftermath of 9/11, with wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Al Qaeda regrouping, growing nuclear programs in North Korea and Iran, and major concerns about America's standing abroad and preparedness at home, a new edition could not be more timely-or more necessary. copywriter rewrite: 9/11 changed everything. In its aftermath, a security approach once focused on rival superpowers has been reinvented to fight a "global war on terror," with responses that include preemptive war, diplomacy, nation-building, the Patriot Act, and the Department of Homeland Security. Is the new approach working? Where can readers turn for an informed, unbiased evaluation of the threats we now face and how we are confronting them?
