From Publishers Weekly:

This is a collection of essays published over the past six years, mostly in Commentary, by the author of the controversial The Pentagon and the Art of War. Admirers of that hard-hitting ciriticism of the U.S. defense establishment will find this work especially interesting for its broader focus on strategy and military policy in the political context. In the title piece, Luttwak, a senior fellow at Georgetown University's Center for Strategic and International Studies, argues with heavy irony that "The West has become comfortably habituated to defeat. Victory is viewed with great suspicion, if not outright hostility." In "The East-West Struggle," an illuminating overview of military balance in 198385, the "inability of the greater powers to impose a modicum of order in world affairs" is discussed. The book also includes thought-provoking reviews of Jonathan Schell's The Fate of the Earth, Zbigniew Brzezinski's Power and Principle and Fred Kaplan's The Wizards of Armageddon.

From Library Journal:

Luttwak, noted military historian and strategist at Georgetown University, has gathered together pre-1983 writings that originally appeared in academic journals and yearbooks. This compilation appears intended for a general audience. The topics include nuclear war, strategy in the nuclear age, and the management mentality of the American military. Luttwak demonstrates an authoritative knowledge of Soviet strategy and weapons development. The underlying theme is a call for revitalized American military both in force levels and strategic thinking to meet the challenge of the Soviet Union. The theme matches his concern expressed in The Pentagon and the Art of War . Recommended for public libraries. Academic libraries are likely to hold the original works.
