From the introduction: “The Cold War is behind us. The Soviet Union is no longer. The threat that drove our defense decision-making for four and a half decades – that determined our strategy and tactics, our doctrine, the size and shape of our forces, the design of our weapons, and the size of our defense budgets – is gone. Now that the Cold War is over, the questions we face in the Defense Department are: How do we structure the armed forces of the United States for the future? How much defense is enough in the post-Cold War era?”
