Santa Monica, CA: RAND Corporation, 2008. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Trade paperback. xxiv, 257,  pages. Figures. Tables. Boxes. Chronology. Awards. Bibliography. Cover has slight wear and soiling. Minor edge soiling. Foreword by Thomas C. Schelling. Forward by Harold Brown. This was part of RAND Project Air Force and was prepared for the United States Air Force and approved for public release. Offers the author's personal overview of analyses of dozens of historic national security issues drawn from his Air Force and RAND careers spanning the latter half of the 20th century. This is not a memoir or a biography in the traditional sense of these words. General Kent was willing to share what he has learned about analysis and defense policymaking. He shares his account of the most significant issues with which he was involved—how he saw each issue and its significance, how he conceptualized and addressed the central analytical problems, and how his work affected policy. Whether the task at hand was setting the performance specifications for the Air Force’s next frontline fighter aircraft, or outflanking the leadership of the Navy in support of the creation of the Single Integrated Operational Plan (SIOP) for U.S. strategic nuclear forces, General Kent always gave it his best.
