Overview

The studies featured in this case study volume span from the Eisenhower administration to the present day, offering diverse lessons and covering a range of issues from public diplomacy, to nonproliferation, to biodefense, to peacekeeping and alliance management, among others. Investigations of the Iran-Contra Affair and the American response to the Rwanda genocide provide valuable analysis of infamous national security system breakdowns, while assessments of more successful responses, such as the U.S. intervention in East Timor, offer more positive and equally informative lessons. Overall, the body of case literature confirms that the reactive decisionmaking, sequential leveraging of tools of national power, and inefficient resourcing which are regular products of the current system consistently fail to support U.S. security.
