From the Publisher"US military base closure is governed by a highly regularized process called base realignment and closure (BRAC). In this volume, Sorenson details that process and analyzes the impact of politics on how it is implemented and its effects. He examines the varying reasons for base closures, pre-BRAC processes of closure, and the 2005 BRAC process. He judges the 2005 BRAC to have fallen far short of its goals, partly through the political activities of domestic base defenders, although individual base conversions were largely successful."

"Between 1988 and 1995 the Base Realignment and Closure Commission closed nearly a hundred bases ands realigned over three hundred others, affecting not only soldiers but the communities which housed these bases. Military Base Closure is for both military collections and any community affected by a closure — it's the only complete reference to these closings and considers the politics and rationale behind base closures, profiling those affected by the process and those which remain."
