Description

"For all those who want to understand this threat and what can and must be done about it, Gormley's book is an indispensable guide." --Dr. Stephen J. Blank, Parameters After first assessing the state of ballistic missile proliferation in the Middle East, South Asia, and Northeast Asia, Dennis Gormley identifies the factors shaping the spread of cruise missiles in these regions. He includes the specialised knowledge needed for missile development, narrative messages about reasons for acquiring cruise missiles, and international norms of state behaviour about missile non-proliferation policy and defence doctrine. He argues that cruise missiles are not destined to supplant ballistic missiles, but rather join them, because when employed together, they severely test even the best missile defences. He then addresses the policy adjustments needed to staunch the spread of cruise missiles, or, barring that, cope militarily with the dual threat of cruise and ballistic missiles. This book explains the systems and their impact on national security. About the Author Dennis M. Gormley is a senior research fellow at the Matthew B. Ridgway Center for International Security Studies and has testified before Congress on national security issues. The author of three other books, he lives in Alexandria, VA.
