- Assessing the Biological Weapons and Bioterrorism Threat. Authored by Milton Leitenberg.
- It is nearly 15 years since biological weapons (BW) have become a significant national security preoccupation. The events of September 11, 2001, although not in any way related to BW, combined with the distribution of professionally prepared anthrax spores through the U.S. postal system in the weeks afterwards, magnified previous concerns by orders of magnitude.

- The Impact of Missile Threats on the Reliability of U.S. Overseas Bases: A Framework for Analysis. Authored by Mr. Joel Wuthnow.
- Despite changes in the global security environment stemming from the end of the Cold War, U.S. overseas bases remain vulnerable to ballistic and cruise missiles. This publication explains how technical, strategic and political factors will pose complex and discrete concerns, and makes a series of policy recommendations for how best to diminish the threat.
