Confronting Poverty

Weak States and U.S. National Security

Susan E. Rice,

Confronting Poverty: Weak States and U.S. National Security
 
 
In this important new book, former Brookings senior fellow Susan E. Rice spearheads an investigation of the connections between poverty and fragile states and the implications for American security. Coedited by Rice and former Brookings colleagues Corinne Graff and Carlos Pascual, "Confronting Poverty" is a timely reminder that alleviating global poverty and shoring up weak states are not only humanitarian and economic imperatives, but key components of a more balanced and sustainable U.S. national security strategy. From Rice's introduction. In today's world, risks to U.S. national security extend well beyond a handful of hostile states. Foremost among them are transnational security threats that, by definition, are not limited to any individual state. They include terrorism, weapons proliferation, the global economic crisis, conflict, infectious disease, international crime and narcotics flows, climate change, and environmental degradation. These transnational phenomena can threaten U.S.national security because they have the potential to kill significant numbers of Americans-whether swiftly or over an extended period of time.
