Fall 2010 Journal of International Security Affairs Preview

The Fall 2010 issue of The Journal of International Security Affairs will hit bookstores, newsstands and (for all subscribers) your mailbox the end of October. This issue features 15 powerful articles covering the subjects of "The Next Stage of Proliferation" and "The Struggle Against Radical Islam." Highlights include arms control expert Joshua Pollack's examination of Syria's short, frenetic quest for an atomic capability, and how Israel stopped it. Meanwhile, Tel Aviv University's Emily Landau explains the new-and dangerous-push in the global arms control community to eliminate Israel's policy of nuclear opacity. Middle East Quarterly editor Efraim Karsh details how President Obama's vaunted outreach to the Muslim world has sounded a discordant note among its intended audience. Col. (ret.) P.J. Dermer examines the shifting parameters of America's engagement in Iraq, and what is likely to follow America's withdrawal. This issue also features a "Perspective" interview with former Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Robert G. Joseph as well as reviews of four timely books dealing with the U.S. national security debate, cyberwarfare, Palestinian terrorism and American counterinsurgency strategy.
