Military Reform: A Reference Handbook


6:00 - 7:30 PM EST

Come celebrate the publication of Military Reform: A Reference Handbook.  Join authors Lawrence J. Korb, Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress and a senior advisor to the Center for Defense Information and Winslow T. Wheeler, director of the Straus Military Reform Project at CDI for a discussion and Q&A on the book moderated by Bruce G. Blair, President of World Security Institute.

Just published, Military Reform: A Reference Handbook, examines the successes and failures of the recent military reform movement in Congress and the Pentagon. The book presents the reader with a history of the various attempts to reform the American armed forces – from both internal and external sources – from the American Revolution to the present day. The authors identify the serious yet poorly addressed challenges facing America’s defenses today, and focus on both the genuine and cosmetic efforts taken to remedy the many remaining critical problems. They conclude with lessons for how to reform our armed forces more effectively than the ineffectual – and sometimes counterproductive – efforts that have been attempted in recent years.
