New Challenges, New Tools for Defense Decisionmaking — http://www.rand.org/publications/MR/MR1576/index.html
The collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold WarÃ¢â‚¬â€and then the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001Ã¢â‚¬â€transformed the task of American foreign and defense policymaking. This book outlines the dimensions of that transformation and sketches new tools for dealing with the policy challengesÃ¢â‚¬â€from modeling and gaming, to planning based on capabilities rather than threats, to personnel planning and making use of “best practices” from the private sector.
