Summary On November 26, 2008 the Project on National Security Reform submitted its 2-year study of the national security system, Forging a new shield, to the President, President-elect, and Congress. The study found that the national security system was at risk of failure and needed serious reform. Before the Project finalized the report's recommendations, its Vision Working Group tested the findings against a diverse set of scenarios to determine if the recommendations were robust and effective. This testing revealed that each of the five major findings improved the performance of the current national security system. [Volume 1] documents the scenario-testing process used by the Vision Working Group. It includes the actual pre-reform and post-reform scenarios and details many other scenario techniques used in the overall study. The studies featured in Volume 2 span from the Eisenhower administration to the present day, offering diverse lessons and covering a range of issues from public diplomacy, to nonproliferation, to biodefense, to peacekeeping and alliance management, among others.
