"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."--BOOK JACKET

The QDR in perspective meeting America's national security needs in the 21st century : the final report of the Quadrennial Defense Review Independent Panel ( )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Congress has required by law that every four years the Department of Defense conduct what would outside of government simply be called a --strategic review of its existing plans and programs. The Department calls this process the -- Quadrennial Defense Review or the --QDR for short. ... This latest QDR continues the trend of the last 15 years. It is a wartime QDR, prepared by a Department that is focused -- understandably and appropriately -- on responding to the threats America now faces and winning the wars in which America is now engaged. Undoubtedly the QDR is of value in helping Congress review and advance the current vital missions of the Department. But for the reasons already stated, it is not the kind of long term planning document which the statute envisions. Congress constituted our Independent Panel to review the QDR, assess the long term threats facing America, and produce recommendations regarding the capabilities which will be necessary to meet those threats. We have deliberated for over five months, in the process reviewing a mass of documents (both classified and unclassified), interviewing dozens of witnesses from the Department, and consulting a number of outside experts."--Introduction
