The United States faces the realistic and indefinite threat of terrorist attack with nuclear weapons. Whether the United States is successful in preventing such an attack will depend on whether we effectively wield the instruments of security. It will also depend on whether we effectively manage national security processes and apply the law in a manner that both enhances security and upholds our core values. As a result, lawyers, not just presidents, generals, and spies, will decide the outcome of this conflict. This book, first published in 2007, is essential for anyone wanting an understanding of national security law and process. The book includes chapters on constitutional law, the use of force, and homeland security, presented in the context of today's threats and as applied to issues like rendition and electronic surveillance.

Now fully updated and totally revised, this highly regarded classic remains the most comprehensive study available of America’s military history. Called “the preeminent survey of American military history” by Russell F. Weigley, America’s foremost military historian, For the Common Defense is an essential contribution to the field of military history. This carefully researched third edition provides the most complete and current history of United States defense policy and military institutions and the conduct of America’s wars. Without diminishing the value of its earlier editions, authors Allan R. Millett, Peter Maslowski, and William B. Feis provide a fresh perspective on the continuing issues that characterize national security policy. They have updated the work with new material covering nearly twenty years of scholarship, including the history of the American military experience in the Balkans and Somalia, analyzing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2001 to 2012, and providing two new chapters on the Vietnam War. For the Common Defense examines the nation’s pluralistic military institutions in both peace and war, the tangled civil-military relations that created the country’s commitment to civilian control of the military, the armed forces’ increasing nationalization and professionalization, and America’s growing reliance on sophisticated technologies spawned by the Industrial Revolution and the Computer and Information Ages. This edition is also a timely reminder that vigilance is indeed the price of liberty but that vigilance has always been—and continues to be—a costly, complex, and contentious undertaking in a world that continually tests America’s willingness and ability to provide for the common defense.

America is at a crossroads. The military services are being asked to meet increased demands across the globe but lack a Congress that will put aside politically polarizing ideals in order to provide the leadership and budget certainty necessary to provide for the common defense. As a result, this study asks the question: “Is Congress fulfilling its constitutional mandate to provide for the common defense?” The conclusion is an unequivocal “no.” This conclusion is reached through the examination of two driving forces behind growing budget uncertainty: the increasing use of and length of Continuing Resolution Authority (CRA) and the 2011 Budget Control Act (BCA). The latter levies sequestration provisions on the military, specifically the Air Force. To begin, this study examines current national security strategies intended to inform the defense-budgetary process and looks at how the defense-budget process is designed to work. The study identifies a disconnect between national strategic objectives and defense budgeting. What follows is a detailed analysis of how CRA coupled with the implementation of sequestration in FY 2013 and threats of sequestration caps in the near future have impacted and will continue to have detrimental effects on the Air Force and the rest of the United States military. While political polarization, to a certain extent, is a mainstay of Congressional activity, ways exist to address the growing divide and restore some level of certainty to the defense-budget process. This study offers three recommendations for consideration by Congressional leadership and the American public—return of earmarks, reform of the House and Senate party and committee leadership structure, and amending the U.S. Constitution to provide a four-year term for the US House of Representatives.
