The Wounded Giant: America's Armed Forces in an Age of Austerity :

A farseeing and controversial analysis of the military America needs and the military we can afford from the director of research at Brookings.

As total federal debt trends toward 100 percent of the GDP and America wavers on the edge of another recession, the nation may respond with a plan for deficit reduction that could cut defense spending by as much as $1 trillion over a decade. This, Michael O'Hanlon argues, isn't just unwise - it is potentially catastrophic. Yet balanced cuts of up to half that size may be a prudent contribution to deficit reduction. The Wounded Giant asks us to take a deep breath and think clearly and deeply about our national security and about our role in the world. O'Hanlon forcefully reminds us that it's not a question of how much we want to pay for our military, but how much we need to pay.
