International Security, the quarterly journal edited by the Center for Science and International Affairs and published by the MIT Press, completed its sixth year of publication in the spring of 1982. The journal''s articles reflect a broad definition of international security, embracing a wide range of foreign policy and defense issues, with particular emphasis on the use, the threat, and the control of force. It seeks to present analysis and opinion representing diverse perspectives and approaches, and thus to contribute to the debate on national security issues. During the past year, International Security published the following essays:
