National security, in theory and practice, is about governing a nation for the well-being of the people. It is a group subject and is not the domain of a single expert of a kind. It is teamwork under leadership of excellence. What is important is the consistency of purpose providing comfort to the people of a national and thereby the people of the world in their physical, mental and emotional domains as an ongoing process throughout their lives.

Excellent book with absolutely new ideas and thoughts but seemingly published at very low key. A must read and re-read.
