Mission Creep: The Militarization of US Foreign Policy? examines the question of whether the US Department of Defense (DOD) has assumed too large a role in influencing and implementing US foreign policy while confronting the challenges arising from terrorism, Islamic radicalism, insurgencies, ethnic conflicts and failed states. Contributors investigate and provide different perspectives on the extent to which military leaders and DOD have increased their influence and involvement in areas such as foreign aid, development, diplomacy, policy debates, and covert operations. The book concludes that there has been a militarization of US foreign policy while it explores the institutional and political causes and their implications. Mission Creep's assessment and policy recommendations about how to rebalance the role of civilian agencies in foreign policy will interest students, scholars, and practitioners of US foreign policy, defense policy, and security studies.
