November 2010: Publication of Tobin's "The Prudent Use of Power In American National Security Strategy"

This fall, the Tobin Project released a new volume, titled The Prudent Use of Power in American National Security Strategy. Co-edited by Stephen Van Evera (MIT, Political Science) and Sidharth Shah (The Tobin Project), this compendium of ten essays from leading scholars in the field examines the utility of non-military power in U.S. national security policy.  The authors, who presented their research at Tobin’s 2009 national security conference, consider the potential risks and benefits of shifting U.S. foreign policy toward a more prudent, restrained use of military power. This scholarship aims to test the limits of military and non-military power in addressing national security challenges by exploring how to use each most effectively. Contributors to the compendium include Daniel Byman (Georgetown University, Political Science), Carolyne Davidson (Yale University, Ph.D. candidate in History), Deepak Malhotra (Harvard Business School), and Jeremi Suri (UT-Austin, History).
