These fourteen essays analyze several major areas of American conventional defense: the new administration's defense policy the state of the NATO Warsaw Pact conventional balance, the effectiveness of NATO's conventional strategy and problems associated with projecting military power in the Third World. Over half of the chapters in this edition are new, and two others have been extensively revised and updated.ContributorsBarry R. Posen, John Mearsheimer, Malcolm Chalmers, Lutz Unterseher, Eliot A.
