Editorial Reviews

NOD and Conversion
Represent[s] the most sophisticated U.S. defence planning....Rather than focusing on the 'rogue states'...The RAND team advocate concentration on 'generic threats' and planning based on a grand strategy....As an appropriate metaphor for such planning, the authors point to investment portfolios, in the management of which diversification is, for instance, important, as is the ability to take advance of arising opportunities whilst hedging against the unforeseen....As tools for such sophisticated planning, the RAND team advocate quite complex computer modelling, which is described in great detail.Strategic Appraisal 1997 offers a good benchmark of the state of the art of current thinking with regard to long-range defense issues in an era of great change.
