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
