- U.S. National Security: Beyond the Cold War. Authored by AMB Robert Ellsworth, Dr. David Jablonsky, Prof. Ronald Steel, Dr. Morton H. Halperin, Dr. Lawrence Korb.
- U.S. national security is a subject that has been under intense scrutiny since the end of the Cold War. What constitutes such security for the United States as this country approaches the new century? Are the ends, ways, and means of our national security and national military strategies sufficient to provide for the nation's future? And above all, as this country celebrates the 50th anniversary of the National Security Act of 1947, are the institutions that resulted from that act still sufficient for the post-Cold War era?
