The end of the Cold War has rightly and understandably led to major reductions in the military might of the former adversaries. Without the emergence of a significant military threat to international security, these cuts in military power will continue and are likely to become both more severe and irreversible as time passes. The message in this book is a sobering and unsettling assessment that combines alarm and prescription. Ullman warns that, unless the U.S. takes powerful remedial action, or is very lucky, this pledge cannot and will not be met. N° de réf. du libraire 000726
Synopsis : This volume addresses the question of "how much defence is enough", in the post-Cold War world. The end of the Cold War has led to major reductions in the military might of the former adversaries. For the moment, although the United States is reducing its Cold War active-duty force of 2.2 million to about 1.4 million and yearly defence budget of $300 billion to about $250 billion, the Clinton administration has pledged that this force will remain "the best-equiped, best-trained, and best-prepared in the world". This book warns that, unless the United States takes powerful remedial action, or is very lucky, this pledge cannot be met. The author's concern is that because of domestic, structural and governance issues within the United States, the future could see a smaller, weaker American military, an overly expensive defence infrastructure, with the possibility of serious consequences arising from this decline in strength.
