American Military Strategy is organized around four topics: "Security Strategy and Military Missions," "Alliances, Coalitions, and Polyglot Peacekeepers," "The Promise and Perils of the Revolution in Military Affairs," and "The WMD Problem: Offense and Defense." Each topic begins with a list of questions for discussion, is followed by a series of policy memos by guest experts, and concludes with a summary of the discussion on that topic.
