Abstract:

The Ninth National Security Affairs Conference, cosponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs and the National Defense University, provided a forum in which officials from throughout Government discussed important aspects of U.S. national security with prominent leaders from the private sector. The papers presented to stimulate discussions at the conference, as well as summaries of those discussions, make up this volume. This year's conference, "Evolving Strategies for a Changing World," addressed the problems of devising a coherent U.S. national security strategy to meet the challenges of international turbulence. Five topics were addressed: evolving a national strategy, strategies for Western Europe, strategies for the use of space, comparing U.S. and Soviet strategies, and the U.S. system for developing strategy. Our distinguished authors and panelists raised fundamental strategic issues which will continue to confront U.S. national security policy makers in the years ahead. Because the issues are of abiding concern to scholars and to an informed American public, we have departed somewhat from our "Proceedings" format of past years and have designed this 1982 NSAC report as a reader in national security. We feel it will serve the defense and academic communities even better in this format, while still furnishing an accurate account of the conference events.
