Summary
"This new study challenges the widely held view that many current US adversaries cannot be deterred, maintaining that deterrence should shape US policies toward so-called rogue states and terrorist groups. The book critically asses the "three pillars" of the Bush administration's national security policy: missile defense, which preoccupied the administration until 9/11; preemption, which became the US focus after the 9/11 attacks; and homeland security, which the administration embraced immediately in the aftermath of the attacks. James Lebovic argues that US policy has suffered because of severe deficiencies in US strategies. Deterring International Terrorism and Rogue States ultimately establishes that inadequate offensive and defensive strategies have led US policymakers to pursue open-ended policies without adequate concern for resource trade-offs, overreach, and unintended consequences." "This book will be of great interest to students of US foreign policy, national and international security, terrorism, and international relations in general." -- from dust jacket
