"Review of Hit to Kill: The New Battle over Shielding America from Missile Attack"

Journal Article, Survival

By Steven E. Miller, Director, International Security Program; Editor-in-Chief, International Security; Co-Principal Investigator, Project on Managing the Atom

"Review of Critical Reflections on Security and Change"

Journal Article, Journal of Cold War Studies, issue No. 2, volume Vol. 4

By Steven E. Miller, Director, International Security Program; Editor-in-Chief, International Security; Co-Principal Investigator, Project on Managing the Atom

The field of international security came of age during the Cold War. Its growth was galvanized by the Soviet-American rivalry that emerged after World War II. The central preoccupation of security studies was the military dimension of that rivalry and above all the nuclear arms race at the heart of the competition. Although the field grew increasingly diverse over time, its core concerns (especially for so-called "mainstream" or "traditional" security studies) remained focused on the superpowers, their allies, their militaries, and their global competition. Indeed, to critics of traditional security studies, the field itself seems like an artifact of the Cold War.

What are we to make of the field now that the world has changed so suddenly and so stunningly? What does the end of the Cold War mean for a field that wassoheavily shaped by Cold War concerns?

Half of the book consists of offerings by critics of traditional security studi

"International Security at Twenty-five: From One World to Another"

Journal Article, International Security, issue 1, volume 26

By Steven E. Miller, Director, International Security Program; Editor-in-Chief, International Security; Co-Principal Investigator, Project on Managing the Atom

Though the end of the Cold War raised questions in some minds about the status of the field and the survival of IS, the journal has flourished over the last decade. A substantially new agenda has emerged, one that raises fundamental questions about America’s role in the world, the character of great power relations, and the feasibility and desirability of various possible post–Cold War international orders.

China's relentless economic growth in the 1980s and 1990s heralded its emergence as a great power in world politics. As its economy expanded, China seemed poised to become the second-largest economy in the world. At the same time, it modernized its military and adopted a more assertive diplomatic posture.
