About the Author

Keith B. Payne, president of the National Institute for Public Policy, adjunct professor at Georgetown University, editor-in-chief of Comparative Strategy, and a member of the State Department's Defense Trade Advisory Group, is the author of seven previous books on international security issues.


"An excellent overview of the history and future of deterrence." -- Naval War College Review

"Masterful analysis." -- Airpower Journal

"Perhaps the best critique of proliferation is to be found in Deterrence in the Second Nuclear Age, even though Keith Payne does not write directly about the subject. Payne argues that, in what he calls 'the second nuclear age, ' the character of deterrence has changed. More important still, he offers some tentative steps toward developing effective deterrence policies for this new era." -- Orbis
