    present the Strategic Defence Review, which creates new structures and mechanisms for decision-making, modifying old concepts so as to have a modern and capable security and defence system, adjusted to both national possibilities and the strategic international panorama. 7. This history of the Strategic Defense Initiative ranges across politics, economics, strategic studies and international relations. It provides the results of research into the SDI interest groups, the distribution of contracts and the politics of influence. It discusses the wider contexts of 'Star Wars', such as alliance management, marketing and domestic politics, and its military spin-offs.

    Strategic defence is a type of military planning doctrine and a set defense and/or combat activities used for the purpose of deterring, resisting and repelling a strategic offensive, conducted as either a territorial or airspace, invasion or attack; or as part of a cyberspace attack in cyberwarfare; or a naval offensive to interrupt shipping lane traffic as a form of economic warfare. This book covers the Reagan administration's original proposal; the main disagreements about strategic and technical feasibility; the effects of Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) on relations between the U.S. and the Soviet Union; and the effects of SDI on relations between the U.S. and its allies.
