The National Institute Press proudly presents an important book, Bradley A. Thayer, ed., American National Security Policy: Essays in Honor of William R. Van Cleave (U.S. $35.00, ISBN 978-0-9776221-1-5, hardcover). This work honors Dr. William Van Cleave by highlighting his achievements in the field of U.S. national security and his impact on friends, colleagues, and graduate students, but also by addressing the fundamental threats and issues that the United States faces in a post-Cold War era. Nineteen senior academics and policymakers, such as Colin S. Gray, Kerry M. Kartchner, Holger H. Mey, Keith B. Payne, Michelle Van Cleave, and David S. Yost, address such fundamental issues as ballistic missile defense, intelligence and counterintelligence, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, defense budgeting and planning, and the virulent threat that rogue states and non-state actors pose to American national security policy. With a collection of perspectives and arguments that identify the multiple facets of American national security, this study is of interest to students of security and military studies, policymakers, and all concerned with U.S. defense.
