The Thinking and Doing of National Security: A Proposal for the President

Polk Bob Polk

In this gripping narrative, Bob Polk explores what national security is at its essence and how it can be improved to solve the problems that haunt the world today.

Looking through the eyes of a fictional president, White House staff and other key participants, you'll discover the factors that need to be considered as decision-makers try to find the best course of action.

Building upon almost a decade of experience as a civilian government planning and systems expert, and equipped with more than twenty years of on-the-ground military experience, Polk offers a compelling plan to improve national security while explaining competing ideas. You'll discover:

  • Key desired system attributes
  • The scope of the proposed management system
  • Essential functions that support the paradigm
  • The future system in an operational setting
  • And much more!
While acknowledging that his vision is a detailed work in progress, Polk offers the United States a plan for a better future in The "Thinking and Doing" of National Security: A Proposal for the President.
