What People are Saying About This
“Fonseca and Rosen deliver a work that is both impressive in its scope yet detailed and well documented. It is a valuable contribution to understanding the complex and evolving panorama of global security issues.” (Evan Ellis, Professor, US Army War College)
“The New US Security Agenda is a very welcome and important assessment of the vibrant and changing field of security studies. It examines in a balanced manner the major international security threats facing the United States. In each of the substantive chapters the authors summarize the nature of the threats, as well as the outlines of U.S. policy responses and the key criticisms of those responses. The result is a clear, concise, and readable introduction to and overview of the most important and changing international security challenges to the United States now and in the near future.” (Roger E. Kanet, Professor, University of Miami, USA)
“In this important and timely book, Brian Fonseca and Jonathan D. Rosen have captured both the texture of current “threats” and the ways in which they are constructed and privileged. Challenges are presented in their detail and the alternative lines of policy pursued across several American administrations are made vivid. This book is unique for its theoretical rigor and sensitivity to the tangible, human, implications of security policy.” (Bradford R. McGuinn, Senior Lecturer, University of Miami, USA)
