Throughout the 1970s, the foreign and defense policies of the United States have been the subject of deepening controversey. And since policies and power are closely interrelated, the primary focus of debate has been the posture of the American military establishment. Issues of deterrent and war fighting concepts, of force structure and force balance, of tactical doctrine, of weaponry, of deployments, readiness and staying power have all come under intense scrutiny and critique. While the great bulk of analyses and commentary has originated in American circles and been addressed to the domestic body politics, interest in these vital matters has been international in scope.
