Preventive defense : a new security strategy for America by Ashton B Carter( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Chinese and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William J. Perry and Ashton B. Carter draw on their experience as leaders of the U.S. Defense Department to propose a new American security strategy for the twenty-first century. After a century in which aggression had to be defeated in two world wars and then deterred through a prolonged cold war, the authors argue for a strategy centered on prevention." "The authors' preventive defense strategy concentrates on the dangers that, if mismanaged, have the potential to grow into true threats to U.S. survival in the next century." "They also argue for better management of the defense establishment so the United States will retain a strong military prepared to cope with all contingencies deter aggressors and win a conflict it deterrence faits."--Jacket

My journey at the nuclear brink by William James Perry( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My Journey at the Nuclear Brink is William J. Perry's latest effort to keep the world safe from a nuclear catastrophe. It tells the story of his coming of age in the nuclear era, his role in trying to shape and contain it, and how his thinking has changed about the threat these weapons pose. In a remarkable career, Perry has dealt firsthand with the changing nuclear threat. Decades of experience and special access to top-secret knowledge of strategic nuclear options have given Perry a unique, and chilling, vantage point from which to conclude that nuclear weapons endanger our security rather than securing it. This book traces his thought process as he journeys from the Cuban Missile Crisis, to crafting a defense strategy in the Carter Administration to offset the Soviet's numeric superiority in conventional forces, to presiding over the dismantling of more than 8,000 nuclear weapons in the Clinton Administration, and to his creation in 2007, with George Shultz, Sam Nunn, and Henry Kissinger, of the Nuclear Security Project to articulate their vision of a world free from nuclear weapons and to lay out the urgent steps needed to reduce nuclear disasters"--Back cover
