Rogue States and Nuclear Outlaws: America's Search for a New Foreign Policy

Michael T. Klare, Author Hill & Wang $25 (291p) ISBN 978-0-8090-8243-8
Klare (American Arms Supermarket) explains how the Pentagon filled the void left by the receding Soviet threat with a policy aimed at dealing with ``rogue states'' such as North Korea, Iran, Iraq, Libya and Syria--a policy apparently validated by Operation Desert Storm. He warns, however, that Washington's current demonization of Third World ``rogues'' risks military overreaction to future crises that might otherwise be resolved diplomatically. He reviews the military potential of developing countries presently bent on acquiring weapons of mass destruction, arguing that the existing U.S. approach to nonproliferation will probably not achieve the desired result. The U.S., he argues, must move beyond prophylactic methods and adopt a comprehensive approach. An informative survey of the reconfiguration of U.S. defense policy in the post-Cold War world. (Mar.)
