Summary
  • "Derek Reveron boldly challenges the conventional wisdom on the militarization of U.S. foreign policy by contending that all the goodness of development and diplomacy around the world simply won't happen without better security-and that means better partner militaries. He argues persuasively that the 'next' U.S. military will be one less fixated on preparing for high-tech future fights than a force centrally engaged in security cooperation abroad: quietly deploying advice, assistance, and the power of the democratic example... This is a realistic vision of our future global military footprintùone that's already beginning to play out today."-David W. Barno, lieutenant general, U.S. Army (Ret.); former U.S. commander in Afghanistan; and senior advisor and senior fellow, Center for a New American Security --
  • Given U.S. focus on the continuing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is easy to miss that the military does much more than engage in combat. On any given day, military engineers dig wells in East Africa, medical personnel provide vaccinations in Latin America, and special forces mentor militaries in southeast Asia. --
  • To address today's security challenges, the military partners with civilian agencies, NGOs, and the private sector both at home and abroad. By doing so, the United States seeks to improve its international image, strengthen the state sovereignty system by training and equipping partnersÆ security forces, prevent localized violence from escalating into regional crises, and protect U.S. national security by addressing underlying conditions that inspire and sustain violent extremism. --
  • In Exporting Security, Derek Reveron provides a comprehensive analysis of the shift in U.S. foreign policy from coercive diplomacy to cooperative military engagement examines how and why the U.S. military is an effective tool of foreign policy and explores the methods used to reduce security deficits around the world. --Book Jacket
