In Technology Security and National Power, Stephen D. Bryen shows how the United States has squandered its technological leadership through unwise policies. Starting from biblical times, he shows how technology has either increased national power or led to military and political catastrophe. He goes on to show how the US has eroded its technological advantages, endangering its own security.

The scope ofTechnology Security and National Power extends across 3,000 years of history, from an induced plague in Athens to chemical weapons at Ypres to an atomic bomb on Hiroshima to the nuclear balance of terror. It describes new weapons systems and stealth jets, cyber attacks on national infrastructure, the looting of America's defense secrets, and much more. The core thesis is supported by unique insight and new documentation that reaches into today's conflicted world.

More than a litany of recent failures and historical errors, this book is a wake-up call for political actors and government officials who seem unable tounderstand the threat. Technology Security and National Power proposes that the United States can again become a winner in today's globalized environment.

About the Author:

Stephen D. Bryen is a leading expert on technology security and led the Pentagon's technology policy efforts during the Reagan administration where he was a senior official and first director of the Defense Technology Security Administration. He has also served on the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee and as a Commissioner on the US-China Economic Security Review Committee. In the private sector he was the North American president of a large aerospace and defense and high technology company. He is a noted writer and commentator.

Morley Safer of the CBS Program 60 Minutes said: "Dr. Bryen was the Pentagon's top cop, the man whose job it was to ensure that sensitive technology would be kept from enemies, potential enemies and questionable allies."

Eileen Shannon of Time magazine called Steve Bryen the "Yoda of the arms trade. Formerly the Defense Department's export czar, he knows every sinkhole in the regulatory swamp. Ignore him at your peril."

Review:

“[A] fascinating new book . . . Bryen’s clear and lucid prose renders even highly technical material accessible to the general reader. The narrative begins with the Bible and underscores the critical, if not decisive, effect of technological superiority in determining “winners vs. losers,” with particular emphasis on the recent past—and the American experience in particular. . . . Technology Security and National Power is especially enjoyable for its richly detailed historical case studies which give it the flair of a detective story."

—Juliana Pilon, Parameters: The US Army War College Quarterly

“Steve Bryen has illustrated in this well-researched work the age-old tensions . . . associated with technologies which, in their time, gave a seemingly unbeatable advantage to the entity that controlled the technology. . . .  He also illustrates how, as technology has evolved, the methods of ‘acquiring’ unknown or secretly held technology have evolved as well. . . .  The author points out that ‘there is little chance of walking back the globalization of technology that has already occurred. . . . .’”  Dr. Bryen does postulate a scheme that one might consider to secure technology as well as possible going forward.  Policy makers in both industry and government would do well to read and ponder his work as security will be an important planning factor in any new program.”

—Rear Admiral Norm Saunders, USCG (retired)

“When the subject is technology security, America's 'resource of choice' should be Stephen Bryen. Whether in uniform or in industry, whether in government or in the loyal opposition, the entire Bryen family has been one of the most potent ‘weapons’ in our intellectual arsenal.”

—Major General Larry Taylor, USMCR (retired)

"The development of new information systems, research in the sphere of microelectronics applied to national defense, as well as the appearance of weapons of mass destruction which could end in "potentially hostile hands "-require policy makers to exercise greater caution and care in the commercial trade of these products and technologies. It is equally important for Bryen that the general public understand the vast importance of these technologies. Only in this way will it be possible to draw a distinction between the winners and losers in strategic game of the future."

—Daniele Lazzeri, Chairman of The Gordion Knot think tank
