Summary "This revision from renowned security scholar Donald Snow examines the United States' national security situation today and what policies the U.S. should adopt to confront it." "National Security for a New Era is the first text to offer a comprehensive examination of American national security policy since the events of 9/11 galvanized change. Starting with the premise that there have been two fundamental "fault lines" in national security policy during the last two decades - the end of the Cold War and the 9/11 terrorist attacks - the text places these events in the context of America's traditional concerns over its interests, politics, and military problems, and explores what these experiences might mean for our future."--BOOK JACKET
