Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
These nine essays offer valuable analysis of U.S. military strategy during the Reagan years. The authors, defense specialists often connected with prominent liberal think tanks, describe the administration's policy of ``low-intensity conflict'' (or LIC), pursued in such trouble spots as Nicaragua, the Philippines, and Afghanistan. Developed after our defeat in Vietnam, LIC doctrine postulates using limited force in concert with economic and diplomatic pressure to achieve victory. A logical follow-up to John Gaddis's Strategies of Containment ( LJ 1/1/82), this book will command attention. Kenneth F. Kister, Pinellas Park P.L., Fla.
