About this item

Technology Security and National Power traces on how the United States has squandered its technological leadership through unwise policies, weakening American power over the course of successive administrations. Stephen D. Bryen traces the history of technology all the way back to Biblical times, showing how technology is always a pillar of any nation’s strength and security.

The book recounts how modern electronics created advantages for the United States, and how America’s leaders traded away these advantages in a search for low-cost labor and new markets. Bryen reviews America’s export control system, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and the role of Europe and the United States in aiding technology transfers to Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Pakistan. He pays considerable attention to cyber warfare and its role in national security. Exploring the security of today’s technology, Bryen focuses on the role of mobile devices, the importance of encryption, and the current state of the military industry.

Bryen shows how to secure technology for the future and evaluates likely winners and losers. He argues that stopping the hemorrhage of American technology is a necessary step if America is to regain national power in the twenty-fi rst century.
