Deterrence, Hardback Book

Description

As a concept, deterrence has launched a thousand books and articles.

It has dominated Western strategic thinking for more than four decades.

In this important and groundbreaking new book, Lawrence Freedman develops a distinctive approach to the evaluation of deterrence as both a state of mind and a strategic option.

This approach is applied to post-cold war crisis management, and the utility and relevance of the concept is addressed in relation to US strategic practice post-9/11, particularly in the light of the apparent preference of the Bush Administration for the alternative concept of pre-emption.
