Exporting Security, Second Edition

International Engagement, Security Cooperation, and the Changing Face of the US Military

In this thoroughly updated second edition, Derek S. Reveron provides a comprehensive analysis of the shift in US foreign policy from coercive diplomacy to cooperative military engagement. The US military does much more than fight wars; it responds to humanitarian crises and natural disasters, assists advanced militaries to support international peace, and trains and equips almost every military in the world. Rather than intervening directly, the United States can respond to crises by sending weapons, trainers, and advisers to assist other countries in tackling their own security deficits created by subnational, transnational, and regional challengers. By doing so, the United States seeks to promote partnerships and its soft power, strengthen the state sovereignty system, prevent localized violence from escalating into regional crises, and protect its national security by addressing underlying conditions that lead to war. Since coalition warfare is the norm, security cooperation also ensures partners are interoperable with US forces when the US leads international military coalitions. Exporting Security takes into account the Obama administration's foreign policy, the implications of more assertive foreign policies by Russia and China, and the US military's role in recent humanitarian crises and nation-building efforts.

Review

"As instability has spread across the globe, security cooperation has become an increasingly essential component of US national security. Reveron provides a timely and insightful overview of this important topic." — Graham Allison, Director, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard University

"Exporting Security is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the US military in the twenty-first century. It describes key capabilities and activities of the US military that are oftentimes ignored or mischaracterized; namely, how the US military contributes to international understanding, peace, and stability through military-to-military engagement. In this second edition of his classic book, Derek Reveron shows how these programs are essential not only to US national security, but also to the human security of ordinary people around the world." — Carol Atkinson, author of Military Soft Power: Public Diplomacy Through Military Educational Exchanges, University of Southern California

"Exporting Security details the rapid evolution of the US military's approach to building partnership capacity with careful scholarship and a judicious set of implications. Reveron explains how our security cooperation activities best contribute to a durable peace. Highly commended for policy makers, senior officers, and students interested in maximizing our own security without fighting." — Frank G. Hoffman, National Defense University

"Derek Reveron details myriad non-combat activities found under the umbrella of 'security cooperation' and explains the historical roots and strategic rationale for the military's expansion into development and diplomatic realms traditionally occupied by civilian agencies. Even if you disagree with Reveron's positive assessment of these trends, he makes an important contribution by documenting this important but little-studied topic." — Shoon Murray, Associate Professor, American University
