Overview

In this new edition, the author critically assesses the Bush administration's defense strategy and budget plan. He also addresses the new military challenges faced by the administration after the terrorist attacks of September 11.

Michael O'Hanlon suggests ways to deal with these defense demands while keeping the U.S. defense budget $30 to $40 billion below planned Bush administration levels.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The best unclassified study to date of the military implications of a China-Taiwan conflict for the United States. His sobering analysis makes a compelling case for a cautious arms sales policy toward Taiwan as well as prudent U.S. military planning." —Mike Mochizuki, George Washington University

"O'Hanlon has insightfully separated what the nation needs to maintain an adequate defense from what the military and its suppliers want, crafting a realistic and affordable proposal for defense spending for the coming decade." —Robert D. Reischauer, President, Urban Institute
