Maintaining Effective Deterrence... Cover Image
Added August 01, 2003
Maintaining Effective Deterrence. Authored by Dr. Colin S. Gray.
Today there is a sense that terrorism has rendered deterrence obsolete and forced the United States to substitute preemption for it. The author provides both a conceptual framework for understanding deterrence or, more accurately, the psychology of deterrence and policy guidance on how the United States can most effectively use it. The author concludes that an adaptable and flexible military with robust landpower is the only tool that can maintain deterrence.
