Democracy's Arsenal : Creating a Twenty-First-Century Defense Industry Paperback / softback
Part of the The MIT Press series
An expert explains why the security needs of the twenty-first century require a transformation of the defense industry of the twentieth century.
New geopolitical realities-including terrorism, pandemics, rogue nuclear states, resource conflicts, insurgencies, mass migration, economic collapse, and cyber attacks-have created a dramatically different national-security environment for America.
Twentieth-century defense strategies, technologies, and industrial practices will not meet the security requirements of a post-9/11 world.
In Democracy's Arsenal, Jacques Gansler describes the transformations needed in government and industry to achieve a new, more effective system of national defense.
Drawing on his decades of experience in industry, government, and academia, Gansler argues that the old model of ever-increasing defense expenditures on largely outmoded weapons systems must be replaced by a strategy that combines a healthy economy, effective international relations, and a strong (but affordable) national security posture.
The defense industry must remake itself to become responsive and relevant to the needs of twenty-first-century security.
