Gordon Adams and Cindy Williams have written a new book!  Buying National Security provides a roadmap for readers on how national security budgets come together, de-mystifying the institutions, organizations, processes and politics that support planning and resource allocation.  The tools of American statecraft −defense, diplomacy and public diplomacy, foreign assistance, intelligence, and homeland security− are rarely considered together, and Buying National Security uniquely examines how America plans and pays for its global role and safety at home.  It is the only study of cross-government budgeting for national security that has ever been written and is an important reference for anyone interested in how America plans and pays for its global role and safety at home.
