Kudos to Dr. Thomas-Durrell Young, the Defense Security Cooperation University (DSCU) Senior Academic Analyst, on the publication of his most recent book published by Routledge. Dr. Young served as editor and wrote an in-depth, stage-setting introduction on the economics of contemporary defense industry.
“The Economics of Defense Industry: Contemporary Prospects and Challenges” is an edited volume of scholarly articles that “assesses a series of historical and contemporary case studies that consistently demonstrate the need for governments to recognize, and thereafter factor, the financial needs of a narrow industrial sector that is capital intensive, technologically advanced and that requires a highly skilled labor force.” The book can be found here, https://www.routledge.com/9781032510644.
DSCU takes pride in the quality and diversity of research and scholarly work produced by DSCU’s faculty. In the DSCU Strategic Plan, the President directs civilian faculty members to increase and expand their published research and analysis to improve the quality and professionalism of the Security Cooperation workforce as directed in 10 U.S.C. 384.
Congratulations to Dr. Young on this achievement and furthering the intellectual discourse of Security Cooperation.
